Benjamin Franklin was also one of the leading scientists of his day. But was Dr. Franklin also the Founding Father of the Open Source movement?

Dr. Christian Defeo will illustrate how Dr. Franklin’s collaborative, open approach in the development of the lightning rod and Franklin stove presaged a method of innovation which has given us everything from Linux to the products of the Maker Movement.

This talk will also present how modern industry still has much to learn from Dr. Franklin’s methods. http://www.BenjaminFranklinHouse.org
