Never Buy a Computer Again: Recycling Computers for School and Home

Presenter

I am an Oakland Public School Teacher. I have not had funds for computers, yet I have created four labs now with incredibly fast and up to date software. You can do it, too. It is not difficult to go the rest of your life without buying another computer. In the U.S. we discard millions of usable computers every year. Learn my success formula and learn software freedom. It is not a secret, many do it already. Use the right open source software and bring a maker attitutde. You will astonish yourself. I have a large family, we all use computers and we do not buy them, anymore.






Makerswarm

Exhibit

MakerSwarm is an authoring tool for the Internet of Everything.

It's about building apps across atoms and bits that flow liquidly across the social life of products, environments, and people. MakerSwarm unlocks the power of a trillion-node world so that everyday people; kids, moms, dads, weekend tinkerers, and burgeoning entrepreneurs can build powerful and fun new products and experiences in minutes instead of weeks or months.

MakerSwarm gives the power of X-ray vision to makers, so that they can ""see"" into any of the smart devices around them, from cell phones to TV sets, from connected thermostats to wearable sensors. It's about giving them visual tools so that they can grab ahold of any capability within a device and drag and drop it into a new app that spans across a swarm of your friend's devices in a massively peer-to-peer community.

MakerSwarm lowers the bar for building never-before-seen Internet of Everything experiences and unlocks the power of Trillions so that the best makers can earn rewards in the market of ideas.
