Guilds 2.0 for Creatives
For centuries, guilds were the dominant business organization for skilled creative workers until the advent of the Industrial Revolution. Today, guilds have the potential to re-emerge as an innovative organizational structure for independent creatives who value co-creation, open source and shared learning.

Hacker Spaces: 3D Printing comes to Public Libraries | Guilds 2.0 for Creatives | Scoop.it
What is 3D Printing? 3D printing, or additive manufacturing, is the process of making solid objects from digital files. A printer is used to melt down raw materials such as plastics, metal alloys or synthetic silk-like substances.

SparkTruck

SparkTruck | Guilds 2.0 for Creatives | Scoop.it

SparkTruck is an educational build-mobile! Our project began as SparkLab, a group of Stanford d.school students passionate about making, education and technology. As part of a year-long thesis project, we talked with teachers, students, and other experts about hands-on learning. We were shocked to find that due to tight budgets and strict testing requirements, many schools don’t have the flexibility or equipment to support hands-on building.

The Maker Movement and Guilds 2.0 - Part 2 | Guilds 2.0 for Creatives | Scoop.it

Historical craft guilds, as a mode of industrial organization, survived for more than half a millennium until the time of the Industrial Revolution. It is often assumed that the failure of guilds to embrace the technological innovations brought about by mass production led to their eventual demise.

The Economist - Maker movement is more than just digital quilting | Guilds 2.0 for Creatives | Scoop.it


It is easy to laugh at the idea that hobbyists with 3D printers will change the world. But the original industrial revolution grew out of piecework done at home, and look what became of the clunky computers of the 1970s. The maker movement is worth watching.

Fab Lab Tulsa: City 5.0: The Economics of Personal Fabrication

Fab Lab Tulsa: City 5.0: The Economics of Personal Fabrication | Guilds 2.0 for Creatives | Scoop.it

We are encountering a rapidly changing social and economic world. When dealing with change I like to quote a recent comment from the Executive Director of the Philbrook Museum of Art in Tulsa, OK, Randall Suffolk, which is “if you dislike change then you're going to hate irrelevance.” Economically, our nation, our states and cities must confront the notion of irrelevance with a robust response. This response, I believe, should be in the form and practice of personal fabrication.

Hackerspaces: From Electrical to Cultural Resistance | ISEA2011 Istanbul | Guilds 2.0 for Creatives | Scoop.it

Hackerspaces are community-driven spaces where people gather to socialize, experiment, learn and develop projects with technology. Over the past four years, these spaces have seen a remarkable growth on a global scale. In this paper, we examine how the practices and values of hackerspaces can be understood as a form of cultural resistance by analyzing their views and attitudes towards the economy, education, society and politics.

Urbanism as hacking: the digital generation's tactical urbanism. "The new guide to Tactical Urbanism is filled with examples, and there are more coming along all the time, many spearheaded by people in their 20s and 30s. Maybe a generation that has come of age in a digital world is fundamentally predisposed to seeing urban space as hackable.”

Whereas membership in historical craft guilds comprised mainly of self-employed artisans and craftsmen, a 21st century style guild could also appeal to a broad diversity of “creatives” employed in some other capacity but who seek an independent outlet for creative expression.

The Maker Movement and Guilds 2.0 - Part 4 - Platform Thinking | Guilds 2.0 for Creatives | Scoop.it

From an innovation perspective, the democratization of digital fabrication tools and technologies is increasingly recognized as having disruptive potential. What intrigues me is whether this democratization might gradually “shift” economic power back to the owners of creative skills in localized production from the owners of capital used for mass production in centralized factories.

Hacker vs. Maker vs. Craftsperson | by Janak Alford | Guilds 2.0 for Creatives | Scoop.it

"As a rough follow-up to the last post on ‘Product vs. Platform’ I wanted to discuss the idea of Hacker and what that means in a productive and non-destructive sense (which is typically the only way I use the term). Along with this I’ve included two other commonly used terms, maker and craftsperson since these terms are used somewhat loosely and interchangeably, but I believe may have important distinctions."
