Retweetable Tweets from HIW

Today’s great line-up of speakers at the second and final day of the Hardware Innovation Workshop let fly a flurry of great tweets. Here is but a sampling of the buzz:

Bilal Ghalib ‏@bilalghalib34m Protip. The very core of your crowd funding campaign is your authenticity. Focus on social capital #makeHIW 

Rachel Kalmar ‏@grapealope36m Crowdfunding is more about the crowd and less about the funding. People want to be part of community effort to create. @katedrane #MakeHIW

Drew Fustini ‏@pdp751m “patents don’t promote innovation anymore, they are the weapons of corporate warfare” warns @benkaufman at #makehiw
