Nice quotes about the DIY world and open source hardware from Wired’s Chris Anderson in the EE Times about UAVs…

“Instead of a small number of products for millions, it’s a case of millions of products for a small number” of people, he said. “The monolithic software model hasn’t addressed this. That’s what small companies and individuals are for: We’re in the era of ‘do-it-yourself’.” Anderson also predicted that era of open-source hardware is fast approaching.
