Review of Gershenfeld’s Fab on Slashdot

Fab From Tim! Someone who heard a podcast of Neil Gershenfeld’s eTech talk then went out and bought his book, Fab. Gershenfeld is the director of MIT’s Center for Bits and Atoms, where he teaches a course called “How to Make (almost) Anything.” As you know from O’Reilly’s new Make magazine, we’re closely following hardware hacking and what we’re now calling the maker movement. The work that Neil is doing is at the bleeding edge of that movement. We’re setting up our own Fab Lab in conjunction with Squid Labs, which is populated by former Gershenfeld associates, so you’ll be hearing more about personal fabrication in future issues of Make.
