How to Make a Makerspace

How to Make a Makerspace | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

So you’re going to rally your local makers into a collaborative, community-based workplace. You’ll need a location, which can range from a mobile pop-up stored in your van to an 80,000-square-foot warehouse. You’ll need tools, which can be borrowed from members, donated by sponsors, or purchased. You’ll need a business plan.

The Makings of Maker Spaces, Part 1: Space for Creation, Not Just Consumption - The Digital Shift

The Makings of Maker Spaces, Part 1: Space for Creation, Not Just Consumption - The Digital Shift | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
Maker spaces in libraries are the latest step in the evolving debate over what public libraries’ core mission is or should be. From collecting in an era of scarce resources to curation in an era of overabundant ones, some libraries are moving to incorporate cocreation: providing the tools to help patrons produce their own works of art or information and sometimes also collecting the results to share with other members of the ­community.

Is it a Hackerspace, Makerspace, TechShop, or FabLab? | Colorado ... | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The past decade has seen the sudden, dramatic appearance of community spaces offering public, shared access to high-end manufacturing equipment. These spaces are interchangeably referred to as hackerspaces, makerspaces, TechShops, and FabLabs. This can lead the intended audience to become incredibly confused as to why there might be so many names for a single concept. I’d like to take some time to untangle the mess, explain the concepts behind each title, and talk about why I now make significant distinctions between all of these types of spaces.

Makerspaces - Why Now, Why Bother

Makerspaces - Why Now, Why Bother | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

While trying to start up a makerspace in my home town of Rome, Georgia over the past year or so, I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about this trend called “the maker movement.” It boils down to people banding together in communities to start workshops for creating, inventing and tinkering. Admittedly, I have a tenancy to over-think things like this, and to seek meaning in places where I should just accept that “it just is.” Easier said than done for me.

Fab labs reshape architecture, one maker at a time - SmartPlanet.com (blog) | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Fab labs, community workshops filled with computers and digital fabrication tools such as 3-D printers, are the next big thing in the world of architecture. There’s no serious architecture school or university design program without one. And “maker spaces” are popping up at local libraries, community charities, and even in downtown cafés.

Medialab Prado. 10 Years of Social Innovation

Medialab Prado. 10 Years of Social Innovation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The following article, written by our good friend Bernardo Gutiérrez, looks at MediaLab Prado, a very special hybrid space in our hometown, Madrid. This translation features additional original content by the author (not originally published in the Spanish media article), citing MediaLab as one of the spaces where the initial gestalt of the early 15M movement was collaboratively created. It has subsequently been republished in Shareable magazine, and the website for The 2013 Economics and the Commons Conference.

Making a Makerspace: Peek Inside My Plans

Making a Makerspace: Peek Inside My Plans | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

On October 1st I started on my efforts toward creating a set of Makerspaces in our school district. I immediately jumped into visiting the d.school at Stanford, collecting every book I could on the topic, and fortunately had already applied to attend the FabLearn conference. A Makerspace has been my goal since the first day I started as STEM Coordinator last year, but I was only given the flexibility and permission to move forward recently.
