I went on an adventure this weekend, to a magical place called "Artisan's Asylum"
in Somerville, MA to learn about How to Make a Makerspace.
As I was driving home on I-93 on Sunday night through a dusting of snow, I realized that I was learning from some of the world's experts
on this topic, and that we are on the brink of some real change.
It's been hard to wrap my head around this whole experience, and I apologize for not being able to communicate it well in words to you. A recap seems inadequate, and I feel like I would inevitably be missing the point. It would end up just being a list of discussion topics and a handful of business cards.
I wish I could share this feeling with you, of pure wordless excitement and a brain brimming over with ideas.
I could use words like awesome, amazing, exciting.. but it's just not enough.
So, here's a taste of what I experienced. Gui Cavalcante and Dale Dougherty have much more practice at this than I do. Do yourself a favor and give it a listen.
Also, here are a collection of links for you to check out. I met many people doing amazing things, and here are all of them that I can remember..
