Hi Everyone,
Disclosure - I'm a member of the open source hardware community, and also
an author for Hackaday. I'm doing a bit of research for an article about
USB VID/PID $5000 cost and open source hardware. Nick Johnson of a Arachnid
Labs posted a blog entry about the issue recently, and the reception he
received when asking the USB-IF about the issue was cold to say the least.

I know the openMoko project here:
http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/USB_Product_IDs is an option.

Is OSHWA communicating with the USB-IF on this issue?  If so, what
direction are they headed?
