Hardware Freedom Day this year. Are people willing to help out with
this, for instance, demo'ing a Beagleboard?
I can bring in some beaglebones. Maybe I could demo making a mesh with them.
Also of interest is that Beagleboard have just released a new model,
I don't have any of the green versions yet, and I don't know what

I also signed that, although in general I'm not optimistic about
petitions. Intel will be mainly concerned about how many chips get sold,
and the number sold by Purism will be tiny compared to the rest of the
market so they'll have almost no economic leverage.
