Give a gift that gives back

The holiday seasons have arrived. Looking for a gift? Check out the Open Source Gift Guide from MAKE magazine (via Joi Ito). Brilliant idea:

“There are hundreds of gift guides this holiday season filled with junk you can buy, but a lot of times you actually don’t own it, you can’t improve upon it, you can’t share it or make it better, and you certainly can’t post the plans, schematics, and source code either. We want to change that. We’ve put together our picks of interesting open source hardware projects, open source software, services, and things that have the maker spirit of open source.”

Want to know more about open source? Check out Lawrence Lessig in Wired.

The only thing I am missing is a widget for my own blog to promote the guide. I’m not a developer but it might be a good idea.

BTW I actually think the iBump is pretty cool.
