History of the Maker Movement

The Hackers On Planet Earth 2018 conference (HOPE) hosted a panel discussion on the history of the maker movement. It’s worth listening to and seeing what common origins and challenges hackerspaces throughout the US share even today. Around 25:50 you’ll hear Mitch Altman talk about the original three US hackerspaces started in 2007-2008, Noisebridge in San Francisco, NYC Resistor in New York, and HacDC. Hat-tip to Alberto for the link.
