Openmoko

Werner Almesberger was a System Architect for Openmoko, the first project to create a smartphone platform using free software. It used the Linux kernel, with a graphical user environment which uses X.Org Server, and the Matchbox window manager. The project also released full schematics of the open phone design.[6]

Recent work

Nowadays he contributes as the architect of several open source hardware Qi hardware community projects, like implementing an IEEE 802.15.4 subsystem for Ben Nanonote made up of two boards.[7][8][9][10][11]

In 2013 he started developing the Anelok password safe and, in 2014, he joined the Neo900 open smartphone project where he assists on a broad range of technical and related issues, and he now divides his time between these two projects.

He lives in Argentina, doing trips around the world from time to time, for talks in conferences (like being keynote in Linux Symposium in 2008), and for hardware and software work. .[12]
