What’s All This Maker Movement Hubbub? #makerbusiness

Adafruit 1605

What’s All This Maker Movement Hubbub?. Great thoughts from Akiba –

The maker culture and movement encompasses all types of communities such as UAVs, sports enthusiasts, bicycle makers, leatherworkers, blacksmiths, welders, fetishists, hackers, educators, librarians, molecular gastronomists, homebrewers, and the list goes on. Sparkfun’s business performance could possibly be an indicator for the electronics kits business or other companies that are in the kits industry but I can’t agree that they’re a reliable indicator for the maker movement which is obviously growing. The assumption that the article makes reveals a common misconception to people that are new to maker, hacker, and DIY culture: that it’s all about tech. We choose to see what we want to see, but there’s a lot more depth in the scene that just the technology/electronics/hardware aspect. If I could try and summarize what I think this culture is about, I’d say it’s all about craftsmanship.
