Dale Dougherty, founder of Make magazine and organizer of Maker Faires, gave a talk at TEDxMotorCity.
“America was built by makers — curious, enthusiastic amateur inventors whose tinkering habit sparked whole new industries. At TED@MotorCity, MAKE magazine publisher Dale Dougherty says we’re all makers at heart, and shows cool new tools to tinker with, like Arduinos, affordable 3D printers, even DIY satellites.”
I encourage you to watch it all and share. There are many points mentioned throughout we can use when talking up our local Maker Spaces.
