Glimpsing the future of #Manufacturing with Joi Ito

Jon Bruner  interviews Joi Ito, the director of the MIT Media Lab. Ito explains that the "Media Lab’s emphasis is on projects that go all the way to manufacturing and distributing: moving from 'demo or die' to 'deploy or die'". Projects that are deployed can put thousands of devices into the hands of users rather than just a couple. The most creative companies he suggests are the ones that design hardware and software together.

At 24 min into the video he recommends that manufacturers become more systems-oriented, using data to consider the impacts of production and the supply chain ecosystem.

Tim O'Reilly comments on G+: "The code that makes sense of it all" is a key #IoT  concept not discussed often enough. (
