5.0 out of 5 stars Maker City nails it...
By Scott on October 25, 2016
Being the original founder of one of the larger makerspaces in the US (TinkerMill in Longmont, CO- 400+ members and counting), I can attest to the validity of what this books is saying.

I can also tell you that, having worked with Peter Hirshberg back at Apple in the 80's and 90's, he's been on the cutting edge of technological as well as the impact of social change as it's effected by technology for the past 30+ years.

The importance of what's happening in the maker movement, along with the building in of intelligence to the actual infrastructure of our cities (my city of Longmont, CO, for instance, is building out it's own gigabit internet service to every home and business in the city with costs as low as $50 mo for 1000MB up/down for residents), as well as the increased importance of collaborative business organizations and non profits operating at the municipal level can't really be understated at this point.

Having an innovation center like a makerspace in your town will generate both massive amounts of creativity in the form of art, technology, products and new business as well as attract those same creatives to your city to set up new companies, invent new products and create new and incredibly exciting art.

It's all about the collaborative co-op that a makerspace, full of tools, knowledge and sharing, creates.

Every city in America should embrace the creation and the support of a makerspace for their residents. Just like having schools and businesses- with today's level of technology and knowledge availability, to really understand where we're going, and to embrace it, a makerspace is a must have for any forward thinking city in the US (and frankly, the world).
