These are a few of my favorite things
Three things that caught my eye this week.
1. Paul Smith's Cycling Scrapbook
Designer Paul Smith’s love of cycling is no secret. His dream was to become a professional cyclist, but an injury at the age of 17 ended this. Paul Smith’s Cycling Scrapbook brings together the memorabilia and projects Paul has collected and worked on throughout his life.
2. The Makerspace
theMakerSpace is about lowering the barriers of entry for people to express their creativity in a physical way. It is about people getting together, working creatively, inspiring each other, engaging with new technology, and building a “bottom-up economy”.
The fact is that the Maker Movement is happening. Technology has evolved to the point where someone can, in their local maker space, create many items of better quality and more meaningfully than mass production has previously been able to deliver. And everyday more people are joining the movement as they realize the creative potential within themselves. International commentators are going as far as to call it “the new industrial revolution” (read Chris Anderson).
