Tim over on O’Reilly’s Radar rounds up some recent coverage on the “Maker movement”, he writes –
There have been a number of stories in mainstream media recently recognizing the “Maker movement” exemplified by our own magazines Make: and Craft: and online sites like Etsy and Instructables. (Disclosure: O’Reilly AlphaTech Ventures is an investor in Instructables.) This past week’s article in Business Week, Arts and Crafts Find New Life Online is a great example. (There was also a great article in the NY Times a few weeks ago, entitled Handymade 2.0.) The Business Week article cites Etsy, Instructables, and Make, as well as fashion design sharing sites BurdaStyle and StyleShake.
