    SXSW: The Commoditization of Overnight Entrepreneurship

    Just a few months ago, The Pebble E-paper Watch project received a record-breaking $10.2 million through Kickstarter in a widespread show of support from a community of 68,000+ micro-funders. And all this support was for a product that doesn’t exist, from an individual with no track record of success. A few years ago, this would have been considered a stroke of good luck, yet as of July 3, 2012, there have been over 62,000 launched projects on Kickstarter (3,973 are currently in progress), with a steady success rate of approximately 44%. The completed successful projects have raised a total of $229 million. If you have an idea, you can design your idea, create a prototype, pitch the idea to the world using simple video-making programs (e.g., Photobooth) and fund a newly invented startup within a few days or weeks.

    This panel is about discussing the commoditization of entrepreneurship and the future of bringing ideas to the marketplace.

But it's more than that, it's a Geo-Toolkit that works in node as well as in the browser via AMD or CommonJS, providing tools for reading and writing from multiple geo formats, converting to and from web mercator, an RTree index, and some simple polygon tools.

    You can check it out at https://github.com/geoloqi/Terraformer

    Heimathafen Neukölln

    MobX - your premier annual conference for Mobile User Experience, small screen Interaction Design and usable interfaces on smart devices.

    This conference is for all you creative minds out there who deal with User Experience, interfaces and interactions in mobile contexts. It’s not really for developers (but we do love you, nonetheless). MobX is for all those who love small, mobile interfaces and smart experiences, good usability and consistent behaviour.

    There are a multitude of mobile gadgets, phones and tablets out there, with a mind-boggling variety of interfaces – with often dubious usability. We operate small screens in cars, trains and planes and elsewhere.

    Or is there no such thing as a mobile device, as some say, just mobile context? A star-studded line-up of international experts and mobile thinkers will give us their take on this and other key topics. (And there will be time to party as well!)

    Join us in Berlin and learn from the best.
