Hi All

As some of you know Opensource.com has been branching out from its roots in
FOSS and now has a steady drum beat for open hardware.  The open call for
the May 2017 special issue will be on Hardware

If you have any open hardware projects that you want to get the word out
about - please consider sharing on their platform. I just got access to see
their readership data and it is respectably large. For example, the last
article I posted on using an open hardware methodology to obliterate the
cost of consumer goods
was read over 10k times in a week. Still not competitive with videos of a
cat flushing a toilet but not bad exposure...Hopefully the platfrom will be
of use to your projects.

*Details below:*

Article ideas:

What open hardware board or open source tool for hardware do you love?

your hardware project?

Other ideas? Send story ideas to open at opensource.com or using our webform
