This has been posted a few weeks back and i personally really like to see more voices and especially such well known figure.
As we always had a strong involvement of self-described makers in this community, i’d love to add to this discussion here.
and Garnet Hertz then added more comments on social media:
“Folks: don’t forget that the “maker movement” is about 0.01% as large as the field of art. Retail spaces that sell Arduinos are about 0.1% as popular compared to art supply stores. Makerspaces are about 0.1% as popular as shared artist studios. I love Arduino and building electronics, but object to the entire field of art and craft being rebranded as the “maker movement” - it claims that we’re all makers, but to be a real maker and you need computation. You don’t. It’s a lie.”
