Women in technology: Limor Fried

"Limor Fried was the sort of third–grader who took apart VCRs for fun. Gradually, she discovered that a hobby could become a degree –– a bachelor's and then a master's in electrical engineering and computer science at MIT. Finally, she discovered it could become a business. During her student years, Fried would post photographs and detailed instructions of her latest experiments in hardware hacking. First, she built an audience, and then a company, Adafruit Industries. ...

Fried's approach is sometimes called 'open–source hardware' –– similar to open–source software, but instead of the source code being open and malleable, the source materials are. Is there something anti–corporate in the way that she likes to encourage the hacking of consumer products?

'Absolutely not, I'm totally a staunch capitalist,' she says. She just thinks hardware hacking is good business. Adafruit has become something of a business incubator itself, inspiring others to start similar businesses."

Philips Research Open Labs: innovative solutions for complex problems

"Philips has been a best practice leader in Open Innovation for many years (Source: article of Henry W. Chesbrough in Harvard Business Review). Many companies have found their way to Philips Research to cooperate with worldclass researchers and to jointly work on innovative solutions for complex problems. Many of today succesfully operating companies have been spun out. Open Innovation is a key driver in the Research organization. We have created a dedicated program to facilitate this openess: Philips Research Open Labs."
