Bill Gurstelle’s article on DIY in The Atlantic


MAKE contributor Bill Gurstelle has an awesome article in the latest issue of The Atlantic about DIY, Arduino and art:

For a few dollars, creative and motivated individuals–rather than just corporations or institutions–can make highly intelligent tools, perfectly customized for a particular need.

…large artistic installations used to require multiple programmers and engineers. But now “artists and designers have the ability to do 100 percent of these projects by themselves and have total control over everything,” [artist Dan] Rozin says. “The expertise isn’t that specialized anymore.”
