Update: The session will be held in room 2A 18 on the 2nd floor of ITU. Bring your own coffee, etc.
Due to space limitation we’ve unfortunately been forced to turn down requests from students for discounted passes to CustomerMade. While we’re naturally happy about being sold out, the intention is of course not to prevent students from participating and interacting at a conference like CustomerMade.
Instead, we’re setting up a 1½ hour post-conference session for students at ITU on Friday at 13:00, featuring 15-minute slots from Jean K Min, the SkinnyCorp three and O’Reilly’s Nikolaj Nyholm, with subsequent general discussion.
We’ll post the exact location at ITU as soon as we know and hope to see a good group there.
SkinnyCorp’s business plan is simple: “SkinnyCorp creates communities.” In record time Jake Nickell, Jacob DeHart and Jeffrey Kalmikoff have created a conglomerate of websites which allow users to participate actively in design, conceptualization, and product development.
The following is an excerpt of an interview in preperation for CustomerMade 2006.

CustomerMade is sold out as of last Wednesday. We do expect to have a few tickets handy on-site, so don’t expect to be turned away if you show up with a big smile and your credit card handy. If you really want to be sure, email Innovation Lab’s Berit Kamp at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at +45 70 27 72 27 to get on the official waiting list.
We’ve last-minute been able to add Limor Schweitzer of RoboSavvy to the program for CustomerMade. Limor will join Søren Lund (Lego) and Lars Bo Jeppesen (CBS) in their sofa-conversation with Claus Dahl.
I met with Limor a week ago in Israel where he demoed the fabulous KHR-1 and RoboNova robots.
The KHR-1 (1st gen) and RoboNova (2nd gen) robots are both built from kits sold by Kondo Kagaku, a Japanese maker of digital servos which suddenly out of chance found itself at the center of attention of underground Japanese robot hackers (full story here).
We’re certain Limor is a great addition and will be able to give Søren Lund of Lego Mindstorms NXT a real run for the trophy of user-created innovation in the field of robotics that Søren and Lego have held since Wired’s February Mindstorms piece.
ps. The program will be updated tonight to reflect these minor changes.
Welcome to CustomerMade!
While late in the process, we have launched a dedicated website and conference weblog. It is our intent to cover news relevant to the conference before and after the day.
To stay up-to-date until April 20, please visit this website regularly or subscribe via our RSS 2.0 feed.
See you April 20th in Copenhagen for a day of inspiration and discussion.
ps. If you have any questions about CustomerMade beforehand, please don’t hesitate to contact conference co-chairs Christian Lausten (christian [at] ilab.dk) and Nikolaj Nyholm (nikolaj [at] oreilly.com).
