Submission + - Open Source Gift Guide

Jason Striegel writes: "MAKE Magazine put together a huge list of open source hardware and software gift ideas. It's a great start for spreading a little open source cheer this season, and I'm betting the Slashdot community could contribute a little to the list.

From the article:
There are hundreds of gift guides this holiday season filled with junk you can buy — but a lot of the time you actually don't own it, you can't improve upon it, you can't share it or make it better, you certainly can't post the plans, schematics and source code either. We want to change that, we've put together our picks of interesting open source hardware projects, open source software, services and things that have the Maker-spirit of open source.
There's everything from MP3 player project kits to Linux based GSM phones.

It begs the question: what are you getting your favorite alpha geek this year?"

I am here by the will of the people and I won't leave until I get my raincoat back. - a slogan of the anarchists in Richard Kadrey's "Metrophage"
