Adafruit on speed at Ignite!

dcuartiellesMay 3rd, 2010

In this video, Limor and Phil (Adafruit Industries) make a super-speeded-up introdution to the concept of Open Source Hardware and the business it generates. They had only 20 slides at a pace of 15sec/slide to make a point and I think they managed pretty well. The presentation was made during this weekend’s Foo Camp at MIT at the Ignite hour. Here what Limor posted on Adafruit’s blog:

At O’Reilly’s foo camp east 2010 at Microsoft’s NERD center (MIT campus) we presented “Million dollar baby – Businesses designing and selling open source hardware, making millions” at the Ignite hour. 20 slides, 15 seconds per slide – we tried to capture the excitement and great work from just a few of the dozens of open source hardware companies & resellers. Above, slides, photos & video (m4v). Special thanks to all the companies who helped with some data points and to the OSHW workshop group. There are additional videos/posts/tweet from other attendees, this is our quick video we were able to put together on the train ride back from MA to NYC.
