Thank you to everyone reading this that has supported ORI and how we publish our work on YouTube.
I know YouTube is not for everyone, but it is an effective way to communicate what we do, what challenges we face, and it lets people know there’s a community out there 1) doing things that they might find wonderful and 2) is worth hearing more about.
We have 400 subscribers, which is a bit of a milestone. This is a lot for a very technical all-volunteer organization that devotes its time supporting and promoting project work, while staying firmly in the background.
Our proudest moments are when projects succeed and are recognized on their own merits, under their own name, and under their own branding. Ribbit, RFBitBanger, Haifuraiya, a variety of published Open Source FPGA work, FPGA training, Opulent Voice, Versatuner, Dumbbell, actively participating in IEEE, FCC TAC membership, Remote Labs, our many regulatory successes, and our active and successful mentoring in professional and academic settings – these are all clear indications that we’re on the right track and doing a great job.
Not explicitly mentioned are the many places we’ve helped projects succeed behind the scenes, around the world.
We are committed to an altruistic approach that delivers clear value to project work. This approach has been abused only once, by one organization.
Being accountable, open, and successful is the cost of doing our type of business. This is a price happily paid.
Thank you for being part of it!
