Well this is a mailing list specially for organising a regular meeting in Munich, Germany.

Maybe you should subscribe to the 


list to get a broader audience.

The big problem is that we never get access to the latest chips/components/tools without taking a very big financial risk or getting funding.

The future of technology is not shaped by us. The people shaping it are sitting at Apple, Samsung, Intel, Qualcomm, ARM and they already shape which chips will be available in 5-10 years. And only they can produce them. And - hopefully - decide to make them available to open source hardware projects. So in my view open source hardware follows technology that is already available. We can just make it available to tinkerers. And sometimes combine in new ways.
