I was at the Palmetto Open Source Conference (POSSCON) a few weeks ago and one of the best exhibits was from SparkFun, an electronics company that sells open source hardware, offers classes, and provides online educational tutorials.

How many people have used open source hardware before? Or better yet, how many people have used open source hardware but didn't know it?

Chime in on our poll. And when you're done, participate in this open source hardward survey from SparkFun. The survey closes soon, so get your answers in before April 15.
