This forum was created for engaging the GOSH community for now on. I will introduce myself to get the forum started and invite you all to do the same.
Knowledge freedom is one thing that makes me move. I am an advocate for Free Software, Free and Open Source Hardware, Open Science, Open Educational Resources. In this sense I helped to convene the Center for Academic Technology (CTA/UFRGS), in Porto Alegre, Brazil, where we are engaged in Free and Open Hardware for Science and Education, Citizen Science and so on. Check out the Hyperobject Workbench that we have been working on or our featured project list (Portuguese only). Also, I am a physicist, professor at the Physics Institute at UFRGS and getting started on high energy Physics within the ALICE Collaboration at CERN.
I have been on GOSH 2016 and plan to be in GOSH 2017 in Santiago next March. Looking forward to meet new people there and see friends from last year as well.
