A script that corrects the word "maker" into "guy who does arts and crafts"

"Maker space" = craft room

"Maker ethos" = enthusiasm for arts and crafts

"Maker fair" = craft expo

None of this shit is revolutionary, it's just stuff that your grandmas have always done. You are the newcomer. It's not any less arts-and-crafts just because it involves a 3D printer now.


I agree that makers are 'into arts and crafts', but it's also a culture. There's a common set of language, ideas, and reference points that make a maker. The activities they do aren't new, but this specific group and their expression of those activities is.

I think one day it will die out, and there will be new movements within the group of "people that do arts and crafts", but it will no longer be the "maker movement"
