Punk Rock and the Maker Movement
“Punk’s not dead — it’s just traded electric guitars for soldering irons.”
– from Punks and Maker: How a Music Revolution Powered the Maker Movement
“I think one of the big inspirations of the maker movement was the DIY mindset of punk.”
– Mark Frauenfelder, as quoted in Where DIY Music Meets Tech Culture: Searching for Future Sounds at the World Maker Faire
