Standing on the sun is a powerful way to describe and look at what’s happening in our global economy and the world of capitalism. Forget just getting “outside the box” and get off the planet for a completely new view. It is also the perfect title for a new book by Christopher Meyer and Julia Kirby.
As I have mentioned before, my work in this blog/column is not one of a book reviewer, but this book has special importance to makers, hackers, and do-it-yourself types. Not only because it has some great shoutouts to Adafruit, 3D Printing (including a wonderful find in the fast turn prototyping service bureau ZoomRP.com), and makers as a movement in chapter six, but because it explains the rapid change that we face and for which makers are particularly well adept.
TJ McCue, always on the pulse of the maker movement.
