On April 9th, 2013, Board Forge became two separate projects. Jeff McAlvay leads Tempo Automation’s Electronics Factory project (http://www.tempoautomation.com). Ed Bennett (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Jay Hopkins (email@example.com) lead a project at Chicago’s Pumping Station: One. The use of the Board Forge name and mark are being discontinued. We wish both of the successor projects the best.
We would like to thank Pumping Station: One (www.pumpingstationone.org) for hosting Board Forge and express our gratitude to the many folks who contributed their work, resources, and advice to the project.
