Adam Savage on Why We Make [Video]

Whether you consider yourself a casual tinker or you spend every weekend at your local Hackerspace, this monologue on the nature of the maker ethic is sure to resonate with you.

Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to.
