In this talk, I talk about several things including:
-the maker movement
-the relationship between autonomy and passion and the implications for organizational structures
-the accelerated pace of change being fostered by internet enabled knowledge flows
-the transition of institutional structures away from hierarchies and toward networks and
-my vision for a new internet infrastructure that can enable us to self-regulate at global scale despite the fact that we will never agree about what is important, who to trust or even what something is.
This was part of a lightning immersion into digital fabrication that Collaborative Advantage organized at TechShop San Francisco.
Just prior to this talk, our guests — a group of CEO’s and members of the Dutch Parliament — had gotten a quick hands-on tutorial on Laser Cutting, 3D Printing and Digital Design.
A special thank you to Ruben Nieuwenhuis from Dutch Base Camp for arranging this experience and to Patrick Van Der Pijl from Business Models Inc. for steering Ruben to come check out Collaborative Advantage and TechShop.
