When my aunt is looking at travel photos, she only wants to see my best three. In that vein, here are the three most interesting ideas that I heard at Gnomedex:
- Tara Hunt: Software companies don’t necessarily have to aspire to become the 800 lb gorilla in a given sector (why can’t we have eighty 10 lb spider monkeys instead?).
- Phil Torrone: Why don’t we have more open source hardware?
- Mitch Ratcliffe: We need to open source the presidential election, providing way more acces and making it like a reality TV show. If the camera is constantly over the candidate’s shoulder, that might re-engage the populace. If you were an unlikely candidate in the primaries, it might make the difference.
Derek Miller appears to have the best summaries of the sessions.
