Editor Note - This is a weekly hangcast (podcast using Google Plus Hangout) organized by Man'ority Report.
I believe in property rights. What's mine is mine and what's yours might also be mine. So when two large corporations fought each other over who invented finger gestures, my natural instinction was to the patent holder. But having been an inventor and a startup executive, I have seen first hand how our patent system is broken. What was created as a system to encourage innovation is now its hinderance, especially for entrepreneurs. The Open Source Movement is our best cure and weapon against overrun patent mutual assured destruction. Today +Man'ority Report started our series on Open Source Hardware, with the first show as an introduction and the second (next week) a continuation of our one-man's "open" journey. Please keep checking back.
