The kids I met at Maker Faire (…) have only known a world where a “maker” was always a real thing one can be or do. (…) The average maker isn’t just a 35 year old guy, it’s becoming a 10 year old girl or boy with a 3D printer. (…) These kids are living in a time when there’s $25 Raspberry Pi computer or an Arduino inside of just about anything. (…). Parents (…) talk(…) about how installing Linux on an old iPod or making a TV-B-Gone turned their kid into a different person, more curious about how the world works, and how they went on to pursue art, science, engineering. (…) I think the kids today will (…) “copy” our willingness to share and see the benefits of open source not only for technological advancements, but for social good.
