What is it about Maker Faire that sets people’s minds and hearts ablaze? Mark Hatch from TechShop gives a very clear picture as to why: You can start your own “Personal Industrial Revolution” by taking classes at a makerspace or at a TechShop.
Mark and I have talked a few times and I am always energized after the experience. The man knows how to get to the heart of the matter: Makers and makerspaces matter now more than ever. Why? Because your skills, your passion, your ideas might solve a problem that the world needs solved. And you’ll very likely do it in a space where you are surrounded by other creators, other innovators, other people who are equally fearless to try, and try again.
Watch this short video with Mark – that I asked him to do at the end of the day two of Maker Faire. Mark spent the day hanging out and talking, nearly nonstop, to makers, and want-to-be makers, to inspire them to get into a shop and try making something. A full day, to be sure, and then I wander in to ask him a few questions. The consummate professional; he rises to the task and gives you and me a taste of what it means to hook into a “personal industrial revolution.” My hat is off to Mr. Mark Hatch. Bravo. If you live near a TechShop, it is a membership-based space that is worth considering. If you don’t live near one, Mark would tell you to go find a makerspace – there is almost one in every major metropolitan area of the USA, and the world. If there isn’t one, start one!
