We’re proud to be a platinum level sponsor for this year’s GetGeeked, taking place on Thursday, October 15, at the Brooklyn Expo Center.
If you’re in the New York area, it’s open to the press beginning at 5pm, and opens to the general public from 7:30-10pm. Crowd Supply will have an assortment of great open hardware products to show off, and we’ll be in tow with a few of our favorite creators.
Purism: The Laptop that Respects Your Rights####
Purism is the maker of the Librem laptop - the first high-end laptop that respects your privacy, security, and freedom. It marries the best software certified by security, privacy, and freedom experts with a slim and beautiful design, including hardware switches to turn off your microphone and camera.
They just closed their second successful crowdfunding campaign, and are shipping the first units of both models next week. Todd Weaver, Purism's CEO, will be in attendance and giving live demos.
