As we are moving out of the post about Maker Culture (there will be at least one more tomorrow) we should talk about resources. One major resource was mentioned in an earlier post, but I didn’t really go into it as much as I possibly should’ve.
May 9th – Make:
Make: is the organization for everything Makery and DYI right now. There are other pockets, but this website is a great introduction to the Maker Movement with ideas, kits and general support. Make: also runs the Maker Faire’s all across the country (one just finished in Bay Area and the next is June 18-20th in Washington DC) and is home to MakerShed which specializes in DYI projects.
The Make: organization is also launching the National Week of Making starting June 17th through June 23rd which is sponsored by the White House.
