Open-source hardware Open source hardware consists of physical artifacts of technology designed and offered by the open design movement. Both free and open source software (FOSS) as well as open source hardware is created by this open source culture movement and applies a like concept to a variety of components. The term usually means that information about the hardware is easily discerned. Hardware design (i.e. mechanical drawings, schematics, bills of material, PCB layout data, HDL source code and integrated circuit layout data), in addition to the software that drives the hardware, are all released with the FOSS approach.

It is a graphical tool that designers, engineers, technical writers, and others use to organize and structure knowledge.

strobit - Strobit Wireless Widget Open Hardware Project Welcome to the Strobit Wireless Widget Project. The project aims to is to create a compact, low cost, battery powered, wireless enabled Arduino that is Open (as in Open Hardware). All Documentation is available via the wiki. See RoadMap documentation for further details. Images Activiti - Safari tutorial A couple weeks ago I implemented 2 web applications and a REST API for a new open sourced BPM / BPMN 2.0 engine named Activiti.

Is collaboration tech bad for office autocrats too? — Online Collaboration Last week across the tech world, a wave of colleagues returned from SXSW, inducing some jealousy in those of us who couldn’t make the event. But besides bringing a bit of envy to the office or social media chatter, returnees from Austin also brought back intriguing ideas to spur conversations back in their daily lives. Lilly Hanscom, communications manager at collaboration platform Podio, for instance, got in touch with an audio recording of a thought-provoking SXSW panel discussion called ‘Decentralized Organizations: Do They Work?‘ She thought it was a cool unpacking of the underlying philosophy that animates her company, but it also fits right in with the preoccupations of WebWorkerDaily.
