#ADA11 – Alicia Gibb – Formerly of BugLabs – Open Hardware Summit co-chair…

I work at Bug Labs in New York City. It is a start-up where we make a Linux-based, open source prototyping platform. I recently was awarded an NSF SBIR grant which is what I’m currently working on. I’ve published BUG-inspired papers at TEI and in Linux Journal. I also co-chair the Open Hardware Summit with Ayah Bdeir.

I attended Pratt Institute and graduated with my Masters of Science in Art History and a second Masters of Information & Library Science. My concentration for Art History is New Media Art, specifically flexible programming platforms in robotics and art. While in school, I curated two New Media Art show at NYCResistor, one called Art of the Game and one based on my thesis called Art, Design and the Arduino: A Lineage. In Information & Library Science, my interests were and in many ways still are user-centered design, and usability. Information Science led me to concepts such as source code and the Internet of Things.
