Free Hackaday stuff at next week’s Open Hardware Summit

supply-frame-at-ohs-2013

If you’re headed off to the Open Hardware Summit next week we’ve got some free swag for you. Readers paying any attention know that Hackaday was acquired by Supply Frame over the summer. There had been some nervousness in the comments about what this all means. But I think you’ll agree it’s a good sign that Supply Frame is one of the major sponsors of the event at the ‘FANATIC’ level.

Several of the Supply Frame guys will be attending (which makes me jealous since I want one of those ePaper display badges so badly!). Details haven’t quite firmed up yet, but we believe there will be a Supply Frame booth were you can stop by, chat, and see if they’ve got any Hackaday T-shirts left to hand out.  I don’t think they’ll run out of stickers so you won’t go away empty handed.

Also ask them for a beta code for the hush-hush new online tool which they’ve been working on. I got a preview when I visited their headquarters in Pasadena last week. It’s something that EE and hobby electronics enthusiasts will appreciate as it simplifies the planning and part choosing process of a design. Actually, now that I think of it, it solves a problem I’ve heard [Dave Jones] rant about before on the Amp hour. Obviously I’m under a bit of an info embargo until they get the service fully online but I’m sure we’ll cover it once they do. Incidentally, one of the devs on this project — [Ben Delarre] — founded CircuitBee.

Our own [Eric Evenchick] will be on hand as well. He’s still networking for future employment so you might not find him just sitting at the SF booth. He will have Hackaday stickers to hand out as well since I felt bad about not sending swag along with him to Def Con. Look for his recollection of the event once it is all wrapped up.

Worry not if you can’t attend OHS. [Brian Benchoff] is planning a trip to World Maker Faire later in September and he’ll be packing a stash of freebies as well!

      1. I love the internet. Not a day goes by where I can’t find someone insulting the intelligence of another while inadvertently displaying their own, questionable grasp of the language they are typing in.

          1. This is a small room with passages to the east and south and a forbidding hole
            leading west. Bloodstains and deep scratches (perhaps made by an axe) mar the
            walls.
            A nasty-looking troll, brandishing a bloody axe, blocks all passages out of the
            room.
            Your sword has begun to glow very brightly.

            >attack troll with sword
            The troll takes a fatal blow and slumps to the floor dead.
            Almost as soon as the troll breathes his last breath, a cloud of sinister black
            fog envelops him, and when the fog lifts, the carcass has disappeared.
            Your sword is no longer glowing.

            How’s this?

  1. This is the world we live in! You’re too innocent if you believe that SF wouldn’t try to get some benefices from the acquisition (that is some advertising). I believe it is still a small price to pay for the continuation of this great site. If it annoys you, just skip to the next post, how hard is that?

  2. It would be great to make it to the Open Hardware Summit and my girlfriend wanted to go to Fashion Week. But we are both stuck working long hours lately so it seems we’ll just get to read about them.
