Makerspaces are a place to learn something new, work on projects, collaborate, and share ideas. I whole-heartedly disagree with all the marketing, materials, and consumerism surrounding the maker movement today. Makerspaces combat consumerism by teaching people how to fix, tailor, or improve everyday items.
I recently had an experience where my open source ideas were deleted and prevented on social media, because people are in the business of selling their own product. In response, I started makeaspace, a facebook group meant to provide a space for individuals bringing makerspaces to education to connect.
