Will the DIY Movement Change the Economy, Education, and Innovation Forever?.

Yesterday, Future Tense hosted an event called “Tinkering With Tomorrow: Will the DIY Movement Craft the Future?” at the New America Foundation in Washington, D.C. Makemagazine’s Dale Dougherty, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy’s Tom Kalil, TechShop founder Jim Newton, Kickstarter’s Cindy Au, and many others joined journalists—including Slate’s David Plotz and Matt Yglesias, the New York Times’ Annie Lowrey, and ArsTechnica’s Timothy Lee—about the movement’s philosophy, its implications for the economy and for intellectual property law, and more.

  1. I believe that transformation of the economy will only come from the DIY movement. Industry, for the most part is an elephant sitting on the chest of creativity. I would encourage readers to study previous DIY movements. The craftsman movement is one and in the ’50’s there was a lot of DIY activity. I will be 62 this year and I have been involved in DIY most of my life.

    I would like to praise adafruit for providing this service to DIY’ers.
