I would very much have liked to attend the MCPC (Mass Customization and Personalization Conference) 2007 , which was held recently in MIT, Boston and HEC Montreal, however I was unable to do so due to other commitments.
Therefore, I’m making a small contribution to the MCPC 2007 by gathering the thoughts of some of those who did attend.
Elaine Polvinen, Professor of Fashion Textile Technology at Buffalo State University, published her thoughts on MCPC on her Virtual Fashion Technology blog. Her focus is primarily on areas of interest relating to Virtual Fashion Technology Education.
For Justin R. Saunders, the highlights of the day included Wikinomics author Don Tapscott.
Dave ten Have, founder and CEO of Ponoko posted on his personal blog a picture of a shoe which was shown as a proof of concept at MCPC 2007. The shoe was created using a 3D printer by TNO of the Netherlands.
MCPC 2007 Conference Programme Co-Chair Frank Piller posted a preview of the event before it began, and I am sure he will publish his account of the event when time allows.
If there is anyone else that I have missed who attended MCPC2007, and has written about the event online, please leave a comment and I’ll update this post later.
Update 24/10/2007: Ruben Robert of innovation intermediary FellowForce has published a short summary of his MCPC presentation ‘The Business Smarts of Strangers’ on the FellowForce blog.
