“The real business of the DIY movement”

May 17th, 2012

I will be at the 2012 Maker Faire in San Mateo, CA on Saturday – can’t wait to go! I’ll be shooting 3D video, of course.

Since 2006, Maker Faire has offered tens of thousands of people an annual celebration of the best and brightest in the do-it-yourself movement.

But while everyone from individual tinkerers who have built small rockets to two people doing amazing things with Diet Coke and Mentos to paper airplane masters and crafters making magic out of felt has had a venue for the last five years to showcase their innovative projects, theres never been a forum for the growing number of people and companies that are developing the new business platforms that are merging manufacturing and making. Until now.
