I love Makers and Big Ideas and I would like to highlight here an event hosted by one such Maker, Manifester and good friend, Alex Lavidge, who has spent the last few months producing the NODE+ FORUM 2013 taking place in San Francisco this upcoming Tuesday November 5th.
I am throwing my money and weight behind this event as a sponsor because I feel the NODE handheld, wireless, sensor platform is truly transforming and spearheading how applications gather, process and use sensory data from the world around us. I also believe we need to engage as many people as possible on the implications devices such as NODE and Arduino have and will have on our lives so that WE can shape the future and be aware of how quickly things are changing around us.
The best way to understand how this specific NODE device and platform works is to see it for yourself in action:
In truth, I am both frightened and excited by the possibilities these devices have to offer almost anyone off the street to create, interact and share with the world around them. If you are too, and you get the truly awesome implications of these devices, I hope to see you in SF next week!
