Reviews for Makers : The New Industrial Revolution

Book News Reviews
Chris Anderson, CEO of 3D Robotics and former editor-in-chief of Wired magazine, argues for a "desktop revolution" in industrial production that takes advantage of the Internet, design programs like AutoCAD, 3D printers, open-source software, crowd-sourced funding, and other technological breakthroughs of the last few decades. He muses on the transformation of industrial production and how "we are all designers now." He presents four visions of desktop factories and considers how hobbies can be industrialized, and generally adulates the virtues of entrepreneurial populism.
