An excellent essay every Maker should read on Gonzo Engineering by Steven K. Roberts, creator of the MicroShip“…It is from this culture that the Internet emerged, as well as the Open Source movement that carries in its breast our last hope for freedom of choice. Less obviously, it’s also a diverse community of home-shop machinists, PIC magicians, guerilla solar experimenters, human-powered vehicle designers, robotics hobbyists, amateur radio satellite builders, and countless other independent developers. If you want to see passionate invention without the sloppy overhead of a big R&D budget or the weird constraints of maximizing shareholder value, go find a hacker… someone who gets a techno-boner from circumventing limitations and knows how to get things done.” Link.
