“What’s a Maker Faire”, part 2: Here’s a talk by Dale Dougherty which encapsulates what it is to be a Maker, and why Makers are important.
Dale is the president/CEO of Maker Media, which spun out of O’Reilly Media in 2013. He is the founding editor and publisher of MAKE magazine and the co-creator of Maker Faire. So, he’s pretty much our patron saint. Follow him at @dalepd.
