We are all familiar with open source software and how much good it has brought to the world. Apache, PHP, MySQL to name a few. So why not open source Hardware? www.harkopen.com is a website setup to educate everyone about the Open Hardware initiative. harKopen is your one stop shop for Tutorials, News, and a comprehensive list of Open Hardware Projects.
I took the family to see the FIRST High School robotics competition at the Washington, DC Convention Center. My brother in-law held 2nd place throughout the competition with his 007 “Thunderbot” but was later eliminated in the alliance competition rounds. Check it out!

Agenda: Meet and Greet all the initial supporters of Harford Hackerspace and make new friends.
The members of Harford Hackerspace would like to extend a warm welcome to our newest member from Cecil County Maryland. Q5Sys was refered to us by a friend of his. I’m not sure who that friend is or how he heard about us but we appreciate it. I had a short conversation in the IRC chat room with Q and he is a young, energetic, down to earth kind of guy who is into every type of project you throw at him.
