SparkFun Electronics will be closed in observance of memorial day on Monday, May 29th. We will resume normal business hours on Tuesday, May 30th. Any orders placed after 2pm Mountain Time on Friday, May 26th will process and ship out on Tuesday, May 30th.
We have made a couple mentions (namely here and here) about the OSHW definition and logo. This has been an on-going collaboration between many like-minded individuals who want to hash out the definition of what, exactly, is "open source hardware." The goal is to make innovating together easier and more effective by having an established set of guidelines. The first step was getting down a V1.0 definition of open source hardware - which they did here.
The next step is what you see above - the OSHW logo. Many people submitted their designs and after votes were cast, this logo came out on top. You can expect to see this start to pop up on projects and boards from all around the globe.
If you want to apply this logo to your own projects in support of OSHW, simply go here and copy the code to your website. This is just the beginning, but we think this is the start of a very good thing! Happy Monday, folks.
