Talk delivered at the 4th Oekonux conference, an open source hardware type conference in Manchester in March 2009

“This is the talk I delivered at Oekonux, an open source hardware type conference in Manchester this weekend.

Here is an MP3 audio version of the talk. Here are the slides. They ask the questions that the talk attempts to answer.”

Here are the 10 questions we addressed.

2. How can Open Hardware help?


4. Global Ecological and Macroeconomic Constraints

5. Network Availability

6. Documentation and Translation

7. Eating our own dogfood

10. The shape of the future world

There were three bonus slides

I think you’ll really enjoy this talk.
