Surely someone out there in the ever-growing typosphere has posted about the maker movement, and I’m just late to the party remarking on it here. Is the maker movement an answer to the question of whether you can earn money with a typewriter?
I’ve always faintly been aware of Make magazine, thinking it was just another source of information about the well-established D.I.Y movement (and therefore haven’t showed it much interest, as I’m unlikely to ever find the time to can my own food or build a water purifier out of diodes and fishing nets) but Forbes describes it as people who “create, build, design, tinker, modify, hack, invent, or simply make something” from the intersection of analog and tech. Isn’t this essentially Clickthing, among others of you who’ve modified cameras, typewriters, and other offline tools?
I’ve got my money on you guys to be the next big thing in the maker movement.
