Portland Linux/Unix Group: Linux, Open Source Silicon, and Crowdfunding

Portland State University Fourth Avenue Building (FAB) Room FAB 86-01
1900 Southwest 4th Avenue
Portland, OR 97201, US (map)

ATTENTION! Thanks to a new security policy, attendees will need to enter through the 1900 SW 4th entrance by 8PM, just North of the 1930 SW 4th that many of us have been using for years. (Do not use the entrance adjacent to Hawaiian Express, formerly Taco Del Mar)


Look for room 86-01 and note that the parking garage also provides access from a level below for $6

A guided tour through 7+ years of adventures in crowdfunding open hardware, from the Novena and Librem laptops to high-end software-defined radios and pentesting tools. What does it mean for hardware to be open? How does it relate to software and Linux in particular? Can we replicate the successes and avoid the pitfalls Linux has been through? Where does open silicon fit into all this?

Many will head to the Lucky Lab at 1945 NW Quimby St. after the meeting.
