Inspiring interview with Massimo Banzi the co-founder of Arduino […] the Italian manufacturer of the low-cost, open-source board driving much of the current Maker Revolution. Here, Banzi discusses the foundation of Arduino, the Open Source movement, 3D printing and “making it” in Italy.
And in essence the key message is:
You can teach about 3D printing or programming with Arduino, but that is not sufficient. You need to envision an objective, something concrete that you can learn these technologies for.
In Italy, we need to help the younger generations develop a working consciousness and believe that they can be the ones to make the next big thing, not just imitate what others do!
