Amy Jenkins: It takes more than a carrot and a stick to get the best from people

,----[ Quote ]
| There's now open-source car design, open-source 
| medicine, open-source credit and even open-
| source cola â among many other mind-warping 
| open-source endeavours. Completely unregulated 
| and unpaid, open source is the most powerful 
| new business model of the 21st century. And 
| what motivates the contributors? What did 
| Lennon and McCartney say was the only thing we 
| needed? 


Mario Goes Open-Source with Arduino

,----[ Quote ]
| The open-source Arduino electronics platform 
| has received a ton of attention from the 
| hardware enthusiast community. And one more 
| follower is joining the fray--Mario himself. 
| The mustachioed plumber of console video game 
| fame has been converted into an eight-by-eight 
| LED matrix by Carnegie Mellon University 
| student Chloe Fan. And, yes, she's even made a 
| separate Arduino device to give her side-
| scrolling adventure the classic Mario theme.



Arduino â the hardware revolution

,----[ Quote ]
| Enter, the Arduino: a low-cost, open source,
| tiny hardware board for connecting the real
| world to your computer, and/or to the whole
| internet. What can be done with it?
| Everything. The limit is the imagination, and
| as youâll see from a few of the example
| creations we review here, imaginative use is
| the norm.


Arduino development on OpenSolaris

,----[ Quote ]
| Part of the draw of Arduino development is
| that it is open-source and cross-platform.
| It is hard to believe that it took this
| long but OpenSolaris can be added to the
| list of operating systems that love to
| work with Arduino.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
