Great Work Andres!

I'm Mario Gomez from the Open Hardware Community in El Salvador, we have
been working since last year in promoting the usage of Open Source Hardware
mostly in education.

A couple of members of our group are in the "national technology
roundtable", and just yesterday in our monthly meeting we discussed about
how to promote the Open Source Hardware in education, considering that we
already have a couple of contacts on the ministry of education.

It would be great if we can get in touch with you and may be we can help
you with ideas that could also work in both countries, it would be
something like an "informal" south-south cooperation.

I don't know the case of Ecuador, but in El Salvador there is already a lot
of people (schools and universities) working with OSHW (mostly Arduino), so
our work focuses mostly on congregate all this actors together so they can
comunicate and promote the OSHW further.

We are just starting to develop a "ethic code" and "guidelines" (mostly
based on the work that the OSHWA already done) so  we can share easily to
help people to develop OSHW.
