The Maker Movement is both a resource and source of inspiration for the work we do at Little Devices. One of the most important evolutions of the resurgence of DIY enabled innovation has been the transition of maker for pleasure, making for the lab, and now making for business. The classic example is the Homebrew Computer Club that fueled the rise of the personal computer movement in Silicon Valley. As usual, our friends at O’Reilly Media have an early start in tackling an important conversation about this interface between Making and Business in their Hardware Innovation Workshop. If we weren’t prepping our students for the final project presentations at the same time, we would totally be down there.

From Make:

Recently, Tim O’Reilly, founder of O’Reilly Media, and Dale Dougherty, founder of MAKE, sat down to discuss our upcoming Hardware Innovation Workshop, May 15-16, 2012. The discussion here (and the thrust of the event) is on the innovations coming out of the maker movement and the people behind these emerging, game-changing technologies. Many of the leaders in this movement will be at this event, the first of its kind for MAKE, happening in the lead up to Maker Faire Bay Area (May 19-20). The event in geared towards introducing the wider business world to maker-developed technologies and how these technologies can have an impact on the future of manufacturing and the wider economy.
