The Open/Free Source movement has shown that it can produce great software that rivals and even beats software built at commercial software houses. It has shown that it can produce it not only cheaper, but also more reliable. The one thing that the open/free software movement hasn't done is produce things. Because to produce things requires not just peoples spare time, but also their spare change. This session is not a lecture, but an exploration of what could be done if open/free source methods were harnessed in the making of things: think bikes, skateboards, motors, buildings, cars, anything.
