David Schneider | | October 2, 2012

This past Thursday, I attended the third annual Open Hardware Summit, organized by the Open Source Hardware Association and held at the Eyebeam Art + Technology Center in Manhattan.

Penguin Ebooks & The Research Works Act: Publishers Gain, Communities Lose

John Dupuis | ScienceBlogs | February 13, 2012

I was really angry riding home on the bus last Friday night.

[...] It was the growing tendency of publishers of all sorts to try and take their works out of the public cultural commons and place them exclusively behind pay walls. Read More »
