GOSH 2009 - GEO Participates

As you all are aware that GEO has declared all the data, information and Knowledge as Open source technology / creative commons for the common good. We have shared all the data, information and Knowledge through 300+ websites / links. GEO has started a campaign against patents since last 4 years. In relevance to the above aspects an opportunity was given by the organizers of GOSH to Dr. N. Sai Bhaskar Reddy to participate in the workshop and summit being organized at The Banff Center, Canada from 9th to 18th July 2009. The details and futher information is available in the weblinks below.

The *Grounding Open Source Hardware* (GOSH!) Workshop and Summit at The Banff Centre <http://www.banffcentre.ca/> serves to bring together the many and disparate makers, producers, theorizers and promoters of physical objects that come to life under open and distributed models, and to facilitate the emerging dialogue on both artist-driven and
socially conscious open source hardware. The Workshop and Summit offer a unique opportunity to bring "down to earth" the normally virtual and on-line networks of open source hardware collaboration. Bringing together these cultural producers in one place for an extended period of collaboration, exchange and dialogue, GOSH! will place a critical focus on the possibilities for social transformation and the expansive cultural and artistic possibilities of open source hardware practice.

*18th July 2009 is the GEO formation day. GEO started on 18th July 2007.
