Process is the Product: It’s Not What You Make; It’s How You Make It

Jimmy DiResta, Bob Clagett, David Picciuto

Listen to three different makers with different backgrounds talking about creativity, design and making things with your bare hands. Makers create all sorts of things and do so for lots of different reasons. Some people make things purely for the enjoyment, some turn it into a career, some use it for education and so many other reasons. How does the “WHY” affect the “HOW” of creating things? We'll chat about the difference in making stuff as a product vs making it as a mechanism for education and inspiration.
