Makers. The new industrial revolution. Chris Anderson. 2012. ISBN 9780307720979. Another great analysis of an industry by Chris Anderson ( Wired) , This is the Internet of things – bits to atoms. On top of his interest , Anderson has played with various parts of this ecosystem, CAD, CNC machines, 3D printers etc. So what he has built is a book that gives a very good grounding to the rest of us on the future of manufacturing. He is a good writer and pens a well put together book – so do not be surprised if you read this in one sitting. It is important to remember that no matter how big the Internet gets, the world of things is almost 10x its size. I recommend this to all geeks (Along with Cory Doctorows fiction tale, Maker) who still want to make a difference. Take it along for your next coast to coast flight.
