“Makers & Co-Creation” with AT&T, GE FirstBuild, Local Motors at AllSeen Alliance Summit

Here is our recent panel from the AllSeen Alliance Summit, like any great movie it becomes even more riveting in the 3rd act ūüôā¬†http://youtu.be/VAM1iKpUD2U
We had lots of great discussion and activity at our collaboration project’s recent event.
Alex is AT&T’s global developer evangelist, running 30 events a year with thousands of developers and makers. ¬† In fact today he is in Manila running one right now.
John is the head of connected devices for GE Appliances and connectivity maker at FirstBuild which does crowdsourced home appliances, hosts makerfaire, etc.

Jay is the founder of Local Motors and has a team of 130,000 people that collaborate on open hardware design of new cars, motorcycles, and other things that roll.¬† Like what I and AllSeen Alliance and Linux Foundation do for collaborative software development, Jay‘s community does for hardware.¬† They recently 3D printed a car.¬† Google says there were 31,400 news items about that. ¬†http://www.cnet.com/news/local-motors-strati-is-the-worlds-first-3d-printed-car/

I’m also a fan of Tenaya Hurst of dog hunter / Linino.¬† She’s a mad maker of wearables, quite awesome.¬† She is who you hear asking this panel about the importance of failure.¬† She even makes her own music videos ūüôā

AllSeen Alliance: THIS is what collaboration looks like

AllSeen Alliance Summit was a lot of fun.  Expected 80 people but instead had 224 people from 100 companies and 19 countries come to collaborate. This gives you an idea of what collaboration looks like:
