Anti-Maker Sentiment

Anti Maker Sentiment.

Nothing nasty but Maker community I used to think was just Electronic hobbiests with a new communication medium of the internet.

However, the electronic hobbiests are often the ones designing the modules and gadgets and the Makers are really Assemblers.

A bit like the confusion many people have nowadays when they say “I built a computer on the weekend” … meaning they bough cards and cases and assembled things.

Not a bad thing mind you but I got excited and bought modules and joined them and found it a hollow victory all up.

So, back to building from scratch, which is the why of the DSP saga and the why of the FPGA saga et cetera.
