It's Monday, What are You Reading? Makers

Makers: The New Industrial Revolution by Chris Anderson

This is the forty-second entry for this meme suggested by Sheila@ One Persons Journey Through A World of Books. [Entries 22-25 in the series were posted at  the Dr. Bill Tells Ancestor Stories]

I bought this book at Barnes & Noble in Austin on October 2!  ;-)
I am a fan of Chris Anderson based on his book, The Long Tail - it impressed me.

Book Description  of Makers on Amazon:

Wired magazine editor and bestselling author Chris Anderson takes you to the front lines of a new industrial revolution as today’s entrepreneurs, using open source design and 3-D printing, bring manufacturing to the desktop.  In an age of custom-fabricated, do-it-yourself product design and creation, the collective potential of a million garage tinkerers and enthusiasts is about to be unleashed, driving a resurgence of American manufacturing.  A generation of “Makers” using the Web’s innovation model will help drive the next big wave in the global economy, as the new technologies of digital design and rapid prototyping gives everyone the power to invent -- creating “the long tail of things”.

Makers is listed as book #625 as I extracted this on Oct 2 (the official release date):

Happy Reading!

Dr. Bill  ;-)
