Marcin Jakubowsky (Open Source Ecology / Global Village Construction Set) 
and I
(Open Source Everything Manifesto) have come together to conceptualize a 
conference on Open Source Everything to be held in NYC 7-11 December 2015.
Tuesday 8 December is Hardware day. In addition to speakers (plenary, 
and open space) we have tons of room for tables (going for at least 100) 
posters. An Open Source Everything Handbook 1.0 book/wiki is planned as an 
come of the event, as a living document. Our strategic intent is to 
cross-fertilization across all the opens and to get more people to realize 
-- to take one example -- Open Data without open everything else is simply 
gift to vendors of proprietary hardware and software and does NOT further 
commons or the public interest to the fullest extent possible.

A pre-public version of the website is at ose-21.org [http://ose-21.org] . 
With this email I am seeking OSHWA member nominations for speakers, tables,
and posters as well as Goodie Bag items (anyone volunteering to offer 
think in terms of 400-800). Google Docs for each are supposed to appear on 
Nominations page shortly, but I welcome direct emails to me with title,
paragraph, and link in the interim and as a safety measure.

My intent is to go public and start opening registrations in early June but 
wanted to start some outreach to those that have done so much within 
verticals such as hardware and software.

Thank you for taking a moment to visit ose-21.org [http://ose-21.org] and 
giving us your ideas and nominations.
