Some photos of our (in progress) open source, DIY house. The basic structure was built "barn raising style" by teams of volunteers in three 4-day sessions. We then worked with smaller teams to install the plumbing and electric systems, and finish the interiors. Overall, close to 100 people (architects, builders and amateurs) from around the world contributed to the design and build of this house. We're very proud of this and hope it'll help set a new standard for collaborative work and open source hardware.

"Most industries could get along fine without patent protection" - an interesting article by a well-respected judge.
