Makers: The New Industrial Revolution (29)

51KBXtiFHUL._SX322_BO1,204,203,200_[1]This is a GREAT book!  I found it inspiring and thought-provoking. It will make the reader think and ponder the future of factories and modern life in general.

I find the book quite revolutionary. I guess he believes that 3D printing can become the new Industrial Revolution. It is understanding why he says this as he does back his claim by a lot of different arguments and stories. However, I believe that it is something to think about and ponder in the grander scope of our society as a whole.

Anderson argues that entrepreneurship is being democratized.  The tools of factory production such as electronics assembly to cheap and powerful tools to 3D printers are now available to everyone. Anyone with an idea can set assembly lines into motion quite quickly.

The age of large factories are probably gone. However, there is hope for the small middle man. He can actually start a new business quite quickly with a bit of overhead. And this is GREAT news in this economy of ours.
