Moritz Metz came by KOBA this week to ask my perspective on the German maker-scene for Deutschlandfunk Kultur. It made me feel a bit nostalgic, as if the maker-scene were still fresh and not 10 years past it’s moment of novelty. The question whether making and DIY are new… or just internet-worked versions of age-old traditions. And why is CNC milling “making” but flatbed knitting not? And what about all these materials we’re making with!? I want to know more about where these are coming from and how to deal with them when I’m done with them. Yes, this report shows that the making scene is evolving as it becomes more skilled and informed. Thank you Moritz.
