Well I'm not sure where to post this, since it's not really an exhibition (yet), nor a workshop (for just Arduino like stuff), but it's sort of like a "if you're in the NYC area and want to hang out and talk Open Source hardware financial" theory and ideas kind of note...
A while back I built the Illuminato with Chris and Mike, and got some help from a few friends who pitched in to help fund enough quantity that it would be cheap for everyone. Mostly, though, there was one friend who pitched in almost half of the funding. Ever since then, I've been trying to figure out the best way to get organized to build another batch.
This coming Tuesday Feb 24, Justin, Mike, Mark, Chris, and I are going to get together to talk about structuring an Open Source economy type model for how to fund Illuminatos. However, if something works out, I suppose it would probably work for other projects too?
Anyway, in the meantime, I'm going to use this space here to post updates... and any materials that come out of it... it's going to be at:
