The Coming Do-It-Yourself Revolution"

Um texto sobre Mongo, sobre os prosumers, sobre a revolução do DIY:
"some people there now see Apple as an icon of an older, vulnerable economic order. Having just met some of these innovators, entrepreneurs and investors in the Bay Area, I think there’s something going on here that is worth paying serious attention to, even if many of these people are still Apple devotees when it comes to the tools of their trade.
Instead of waiting for big companies and big government to solve our problems, a new breed of innovators is in the process of creating a ‘Do-It-Yourself’ revolution.
Now the champions of the Do-It-Yourself revolution are also encouraging each of us to build everything from phones to satellites.
One emerging area of business is 3D printing, with the ultimate goal being that any of us would be able to print out a motorbike or microscope at home."

E não esquecer a nota sobre a revolução contra as gerações mais velhas.
E outro texto sobre Mongo:
"US manufacturing is at the cusp of a massive transformation, as the shifts flowing from both accelerating in-shoring and the emergence of new technologies—robotics, AI, 3D printing, and nanotechnology–change the nature of manufacturing fundamentally.
The winners in the ongoing transformation won’t necessarily be incumbents.
The slow-moving multi-year product cycles of established manufacturers will find it difficult to cope with the rapidly shifting marketplace."
