Happy Fourth of July to all of our friends celebrating Independence Day. We might not think of this as a particularly “maker holiday” (besides the obvious excuse to indulge in rampant pyromania), but the independence that we celebrate (and that people across the world should, in general, celebrate) is the freedom to make the world that you want. That’s the independence that we as Americans won on July 4th, 1776 and that we celebrate today. It’s the freedom to make America (and ReMake America), it’s the freedom to hack, mod, beautiful, engineer, and build every aspect of your life, to make it better for yourself, your family, your community, and our world.

So, now that you’ve secured that freedom, what are you going to build with it? As the saying goes: It’s a high-level problem to have.

Happy 4th from all of the staff at MAKE.
