During a quiet moment on Sunday afternoon at Maker Faire Austin 2008, I had a nice conversation with Mitch Altman. At the end of a very busy weekend, he was pretty beat, but I was struck with what a wonderful and peaceful guy Mitch is.
Mitch Altman creates kits that inspire people to make things. “If we don’t make things on our own, then we’re stuck with what the corporations want to give us….If we make our own things, we can make whatever we want. If we can imagine it, we can make it.”
