Social Media is, in many ways, about collaboration and results that are bigger than the sum of the parts. Today, buyer crowds and maker crowds connect to unleash a new kind of company. Is it possible to engage the power of these crowds to transform large, established categories like the Automotive industry? Come hear from a can't-miss panel of experts and thought leaders in the areas of open source, design, and crowd-driven business, and learn how one company, Local Motors is seeking to completely change the way cars are designed, built, and sold.

Up for discussion:
How is social media changing the way that real things are getting built -- beyond just software and knowledge?
How does crowd-driven not result in bad design by committee - (see Homer car)?
As new-industry builders, what can we learn from the lessons of the car-pocalypse?
