I am proud that a Colombian was really the inventor of this great educational machine
Hermando Barragan says http://arduinohistory.github.io/

I started Wiring project in 2003 as my Master’s thesis project at the Interaction Design Institute Ivrea (IDII) in Italy.
Thesis: http://people.interactionivrea.org/h.bar...ow_res.pdf

as I understood, was based on ARDUINO WIRING, if the thesis Hermando Barragan, did not specify copyright, anyone can be based on it, now what has been the recognition of Hermando Barragan?

Texas Instruments (TI) also has a project based on Arduino, TI has recognized this?

As much as I honor and respect your national pride I can not find that claim ("true inventor") in the article linked above. Barragan developed his "Wiring" board and the associated software based on work done by fellow researches at his institute/school. The same people then evolved his board into the Arduino. The whole thing was a team effort right from the beginning and Barragan's contribution was certainly very important. But a best that makes him a crucial member of the "team of true inventors".

Best regards

So you know the Battle of the Oranges?
Great! :)

P.S. There's plenty of madness in many of our festivals.
