Maker movement and Faire spirit
The launch of MAKE Magazine in 2005 provided the catalyst for a tech-influenced DIY community that has come to be identified as the Maker Movement.
Makers of all ages have created their own market ecosystem, combining ingenious makers and innovative technologies such as Arduino and personal 3D printing, are driving innovation in manufacturing, engineering, industrial design, hardware technology and education. More information about Maker Media, Inc. can be found at makermedia.com.
Maker Faire is the greatest show (and tell)- a family-friendly festival of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement. Distinctions of Makers of merit constitute the climax of the Maker Faire. Maker Faire Editor’s Choice Blue Ribbon Winners embraced the DIY Spirit and inspire Makers of all ages! We should congratulate them on their achievements and participation in the Maker Movement.
