FOSDEM: Open Hardware Manager

Tomorrow I'm off to FOSDEM. I'm introducing a BOF on Open Hardware Manager in the embedded room on Sunday. OHM is a small open source system daemon which uses HAL and abstracts out common hardware management tasks such controlling heat dissipation and power consumption on embedded devices.

If any embedded people want to find out what all this stuff is about, then please either come to the BOF or buy me a beer in the evening.
