The long slow make

How will a "long, slow make" transform our society?

This weekend, World Maker Faire opens at the NY Hall of Science in Queens, our second annual event.

Last year, I ran into Anil Dash at World Maker Faire and had a short conversation with him. Afterwards, he wrote a wonderful article, “Make the Revolution“. Yesterday, I sat down with Anil at the offices of his media consulting firm, Activate, to get some long-term thinking on the Maker movement.

This conversation with Anil touches on the social context of making, and what it means for individuals, families and communities. How will a “long, slow make” transform our society?
