At this event we plan to meet up with some of the seniors who have been learning Internet skills through this valuable program, and to introduce them to the new NYCwiki neighborhood initiative. It is hoped they can be persuaded to contribute to the project their memories, and even photographs of their mementos, of the good old days.

Open Hardware Summit

New York Hall of Science.

The devices that attach to the Internet are as important as the network itself. The freedom to develop new devices requires the same kind of open generative frameworks that have broken open the programming world. A prelude to the Maker Faire that will happen in the same venue over the weekend, at this – the first conference of its kind – open source hardware producers will come together to hammer out some of the basics.
