http://openhardware.org

The open hardware organization has published the first issue with the purpose of sharing the design of physical or electronic objects with the public.

The real cost of free

http://www.guardian.co.uk

Last week, my fellow Guardian columnist Helienne Lindvall published a piece headlined The cost of free, in which she called it "ironic" that "advocates of free online content" (including me) "charge hefty fees to speak at events". […]
