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/
Here is our recent panel from the AllSeen Alliance Summit, like any great movie it becomes even more riveting in the 3rd act 🙂 http://youtu.be/VAM1iKpUD2U
We had lots of great discussion and activity at our collaboration project’s recent event.

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 🙂
