In my own words
Hi, I'm Jason Kridner, co-founder of the BeagleBoard.org project. I want to help you master technology. Don't you think technology should serve you, rather than just add value to someone else's platform?
Open source hardware and software are our tools. Education and collaboration are our process. Driving access to technology without barriers is how we hope to make a difference.
