Matt is a guy who makes stuff. Sometimes his stuff is worth sharing. Here are links to some of the stuff he works on. If you have any comments or questions, send them here. You could also try linkedin or facebook, if you're feeling lucky.


Openalia blog (logo)
Openalia is a blog about open source hardware. Matt thinks open source technology is the best thing since automatic bread slicing machines. Openalia has some editorial content, but mostly it's focused on specific projects, the people who build them, and how/why they do it.

Open Source Ecology (logo)
Open Source Ecology (OSE) is a non-profit dedicated to developing open source alternatives to...well pretty much everything. To start with, OSE is focused on industry, agriculture and infrastructure. We are working on the Global Village Construction Set (GVCS), which is a system of 50 machines necessary to turn raw materials into a modern, sustainable civilization.
Wikispeed (logo)
Wikispeed is mostly a group of volunteers clustered around a company that is developing a modular, open source automotive platform. The car was originally designed to compete in the Progressive Automotive X-prize. Today we are converting the design into a practical commuter car and the concept is being adapted to a wide variety of different projects.

Matt got 'into' open source stuff in general after catching the 3D printing bug. He created a blog on that subject which is no longer updated. Print That was about the art and science of home 3D printing.

Prior to even that blog Matt started Disruptivation. He still thinks it's a pretty cool name, but can't seem to come up with a steady enough stream of ground-breaking, paradigm-shifting ideas.
