Description

April 6
The Maker Movement: Finding Meaning in Work
with:
Mark Frauenfelder, Research Director, Institute for the Future; Founding Editor-in-Chief, MAKE Magazine; Co-founder, Boing Boing; Editor-in-Chief, Cool-Tools.org

Moderated by Niti Parikh, Creative Lead, MakerLAB at Cornell Tech

In 2004, Mark Frauenfelder was asked to put together a new kind of magazine that would combine a DIY ethos and technology. His idea, Make, has inspired a movement around the world. From new kinds of organizations (Maker Spaces), gatherings (Maker Faire), to companies (Maker Bot), maker-ism celebrates individual creativity and the pleasure of producing.

Mark will talk about what Makerism means in the 21st century and why it is so necessary as we rethink the future of work.
