#ATIA19 Audio: The Neil Squire Society Is Leveraging Open Source To Help Makers Making Change


Many people are familiar with the phrase one size does not fit all. There can be many good solutions out there to solving a problem. And that philosophy is what fuels the DIY community to creatively accomplish tasks outside of the typical mainstream method of doing so. Chad Leaman, Director of Innovation for Makers Making Change, explains to J.J. how the Neil Squire Society is offering a way for creators to tackle common Assistive Technology issues through the power of community and open source solutions.
