Power tools to the people.

ONE of the interesting things you’re likely to discover if you visit Australia’s first Mini Maker Faire, a free event that will take place at Swinburne University of Technology’s Hawthorn campus on January 14, is that while most of us haven’t been looking, some highly unusual things have been going on in this city’s kitchens, garages and workshops.

At its most obvious, the event is a showcase for the extraordinary phenomenon of high-tech do-it-yourself/do-it-with-others enthusiasm that was tapped, if not triggered, by the launch of O’Reilly Media’s Make magazine (makezine.com) seven years ago.

For a small but growing number of participants in activities such as Melbourne’s ”hacker space”, it has turned the once-exclusively commercial world of manufacturing into an international democratic movement.
