New cultural experiences
The maker culture is a contemporary culture or subculture representing a technology-based extension of DIY and DIWO culture. The subculture stresses new and unique applications of technologies, and encourages invention and prototyping. There is a strong focus on using and learning practical skills and applying them creatively. (Wikipedia)
"I think of the Maker Movement as the web generation meets the real world." ~Chris Anderson
