Martin Häuer

Workshop Open Source
Saturday 14.30 - 16.00
Room 5

Hi, I'm Martin Häuer, people call me 'Moe', engineer, board member of OSE Germany e.V.  Currently I'm coordinating the creation of the first (German) standard under an open source license: DIN SPEC 3105 (technical documentation of open source hardware incl. certification). By-products: OSH Guideline (community creates their own sub-standards) and oho.wiki (meta search engine for DIY & OSH). I believe that the concept of open source hardware (given a good structure) is able to change the way how we work, trade and live together. In a positive way 🙂
