Clones made and sold
Wave Bubble (2004)
Portable cell phone jammer
Culture jamming

Thesis project for
school
Couldn’t sell, it was
illegal
It had to be published
one way or another
I am apparently a terrorist

Spell words in the air
Persistence of easy

 my dorm
 Not “open source”

WHAT IF
SOMETHING BAD
HAPPENS?
BEING OBSCURE
IS THE ENEMY
WTF WERE WE THINKING?
DERIVATIVES
MUTANTS
MISTAKES
TURN YOUR FEAR
INTO PRIDE
FULL, PUBLISHED
AND FREE
FREE AS IN SPEECH
IT HELPS OTHERS FOR SURE
OSHW AS A....
A MARKETING TERM?
A BUZZ PHRASE?
DO NOT POISON
THIS WONDERFUL THING
WORKING ON HARDWARE
CAN BE LONELY
WITHOUT A COMMUNITY
ALTRUISTIC,
CAPITALISTIC,
SELF-ABSORBED?
WE SHOULD GIVE BECAUSE IT MAKES
US BETTER PEOPLE
ONE OF THE
BEST THINGS
ABOUT OSHW
SHARE-ALIKE IS VIRAL
IF YOU’VE CUT
OUT A PIECE OF
YOUR HEART&
GIVEN IT AWAY
YOU ARE AWESOME

After 14 years (or 18 years now, we’ve extended legal infancy) parents really have to let go of their children, and acknowledge they don’t “own” them. In fact they never did.
