just a quick note to alert you to
GOSH! Grounding Open Source Hardware
A Summit at the Banff Centre, Banff Alberta
July 16-18th, 2009
GOSH! consists of a Workshop session July 11-15th for invited artists,
engineers, theorists, producers and promoters of open source hardware,
followed by a public Summit session July 16-18th, 2009.
"The Grounding Open Source Hardware (GOSH!) Summit at The Banff Centre
serves to bring together the many and disparate makers, producers,
theorizers, and promoters of physical objects that come to life under
open and distributed models. This Banff New Media Institute (BNMI)
summit will highlight and facilitate the emerging dialogue on both
artist-driven and socially conscious open source hardware projects. From
prosthetic limbs to electronic hardware, the breadth of open source
hardware projects and distributed models of manufacturing suggest that
it is time for these disparate manufacturers, designers, artists, and
engineers to come together to discuss the common issues of their practices."
The Workshop and Summit are organized in an open method via the GOSH
wiki, accessible here:
An open-licensed document covering the Workshop and Summit activities
and presentations will be released at in August/September 2009.

The contention that a standing army and navy is the best security of peace
is about as logical as the claim that the most peaceful citizen is he who
goes about heavily armed.
