Open Hardware (Part II)
Saul Albert & Peter Brownell
Dorkbot is a global network of "People doing strange things with electricity". Some of Dorkbotlondon's janitors present a tell-all expose of the group's inner secrets: Overlords, passive-aggressive management, pun based decision making, burning effigies and a desire not to do work.
Makerhood - Brixton
Makerhood is a project to promote local makers and create a website enabling people to buy things made in their neighbourhoods. We are currently working on a Drupal-based pilot in Brixton, funded by a grant from Unltd. We are taking an open approach to building the platform and working with the local community throughout, from the idea to implementation. The talk will go through the idea, the approach we have taken and the role of community engagement. It will reflect on the opportunities and trade-offs in balancing the community and trading aspects on an online marketplace that is grounded in physical local interactions.
