We are living in an era when the "digital generation" knows how to use computers, but knows less and less about how to make technology. As the world moves to open source, and people's interaction with computers is dominated by embedded devices, ubiquitous computing, mobile devices and cloud, the typical computer user now has no real ability to change his computing environment in a meaningful way.

As a parent, I want to teach my kids control over their environment, and pass on to them the values of the free software and maker movements: curiosity, a desire to learn how things work and share knowledge, and above all, that we are the masters of our own destiny.

This presentation shares some of the things which we have done in our family to rear our children in the free and open source ethos.
