Yesterday, news broke of our investment in Planet Labs. I won’t rehash the, decidedly sparse, details of the post or reveal too much of what it is they’re working on.
That said, I wanted to use them as an example of a trend we’re tracking closely; namely, Makers going pro.
As I laid out in prior post, we view technologies along an evolutionary curve. At certain points they are more obviously fundable than others as they transition from hobbyists and hackers to founders and funders.
The Maker movement is one of those trends.
