Can we HACK the Galaxy together? #Blogg100

We are all connected [Let’s spin up this networked intelligence and see what pops out on the other side]

As the list on fills up with sessions from SXSWi, I fill up mine with sessions I have and will listen to. Check out all my posts from SXSW.

Hacker’s guide to the Galaxy

One of the best today was from Ariel Waldman, @arielwaldman, who works at NASA and Talks about how NASA in 60ties where just hackars hacking their way into space. To put a man on the moon. Listen to her talk The Hacker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

As I was listening to this speech I was sitting in my bedroom with my daughter. We where watching the sundown and the New moon. We where also looking for the Comet Panstarrs. But we didn’t see it. But still. Watching the Moon together is something we all should do more often.


Hacking my life

Tomorrow is WebCoast in Gothenburg. There I will meet 250 awesome people who all share the love to the web and the new networked society. There I will hold a session of my own that will hack my life to the better.

Tonight I also listened a little to Common Humanity: Making ‘us vs. them’ history from The RSA . The key here is that what ever historians and leaders tell us. We where never as separated in the past as they make us out to have been.

Collaboration, compassion, loving ones neighbors & common humanity always been aspects of the human condition.

And that is what this new Networked society is all about. If we have always done it there is much hope that we can pull it together now in this dire hour here on planet Earth.

Let us all hack and experiment together to build a better future here on our own space ship called Earth

MakerBot 3D printing

Bre Pettis talks about the 3D printer MakerBot in Games: Anyone. Anywhere. Anytime. with the opening introduction to SXSWi also. It’s amazing story about the process about making 3D printing. And they apparently have a retail store in New York. So guess what I’m going to do when I visit New York next week? Read more about it on TechCrunch.


Bre Pettis demos a 3D Laser scanner for doing 3D printing with MakerBot

Ninja Teams

Ninja Innovation: Ten Killer Strategies by Gary Shapiro. How to be an Ninja in a modern society. The most important thing to remember is that a Ninja never works alone. And it’s great if the Ninjas have different skills and different ways of thinking.

Al Gore about The Future

I also started listening to Al Gore on The Future. His key point is. We must use wisdom of the crowd. We need to move over to the network society as fast as we can so we can get rid of the old powers that are drive us well outside edge of the cliff.

So get on the internet and use it as mush as you can. Start spreading ideas and network!

I will commandeer a new vessel [Where we are going we don’t need winds]

Right now many people I follow on Twitter is in Austin Texas on South by SouthWest or short #SXSW
This is a harbor where I wold lay my anchor too right now if the winds would have been kind to me. But as it is my ship where forced to take another course and ended up NxNE instead.

Next year I will captain a new vessel that will take me there. I have also plotted course for Alemdalen this summer here In Sweden.

But first next week and the week before that I will visit some exiting places. First out is WebCoast in Gothenburg. There I will meet many fellow Ninjas and Pirates. We will be discussing many important topics regarding this new network society of ours. This is where my heart and mind lies. For helping building this new networked intelligence is what I intend my craft to be.

The week after that me and my 2 year younger brother will be visit North America. First time for med and second time for my brother. We will go there in airship to the international space port New York. We are going to stay there for a while and the move on the land way to Boston and Geek Mecka, namley PAX East.

Make it so!
