The Maker Movement
What is the Maker Movement?
The Maker Movement is a global revolution in new ways of production, of making products. It includes everything from new technologies like 3-D printing, to new participative, internet-based mechanisms for design collaboration, distribution, and improvement. It is no longer necessary to wait for a factory or big company to make what you want – you can make it yourself. Even farmers in Africa have a surprising amount of access to this technology and can design their own agricultural technology and share it without waiting for a government or organization to tell them what to do.
