The Arduino story has been written by Clive Thompson, one of the Wired Magazine reporters. Check the full story here. The article, titled “Build It. Share It. Profit. Can Open Source Hardware Work?”  reviews several hardware projects under the umbrella of the Open Source philosophy.

Arduino opens the story and includes probably the funkiest pictures ever taken on (some of) us. The online version shows a picture of the Diecimila board, together with some nice shots of related projects: WineM coaster, Snail Light Seeker, the interactive embroidery mentioned in this blog, and Botanicalls. Congratulations to all of you that got featured in the article.

Tom sent this picture of the printed article, both him and Dave are not in the pictures since they couldn’t come to Milano for the photo-shoot. Hopefully for the 10th anniversary we can all be there.

Tom also reported back from Maker Faire where he could get one of Massimo’s newly printed books. Seems like this should be marked as “Arduino’s week” in our calendar for the coming years. Since Tom didn’t make it to the pictures on Wired, I feel like I gotta post him while at MF.

PS. Guys, this is a far as my imagination could go when it comes to being mentioned on print … well, this one and the British encyclopedia, but we aren’t into it yet, or am I wrong?

    I just read the article, I was amazed how big it is. It’s a full coverage on the Arduino and of other cool open stuff With Wired’s traditional optimism, that’s awesome!

    Congratulations on the WIRED article…
    May I suggest you take a look at ?

    The whole point of the site, apart from allowing me to vent some excess creativity and have fun, is to show that the way to generate great ideas is to have lots…quality via quantity. These are given away in order to stop people patenting them -so that anyone can exploit them commercially. There are already several examples of people who have modified one of these IOTDs and made money from the resulting product.

    If they decide they want refinements and extensions to the published ideas, people pay me some fees -based on my 20 years’ experience in the product development business. Open source seems to be putting imagination and quick thinking back at the forefront of the technology business.

    I have red your article and would be interested in collaborating with you on a branding strategy for your product. I am strategic director for Momentum McCann in Milan.

    Would love to hear from you guys, Michele
