While Obamacare threatens to crush the regular economy with new burdensome regulations, homegrown tinkerers are hard at work manufacturing a brighter future.

Chris Anderson is CEO of 3DRobotics and author of “Makers: The New Industrial Revolution.” He was also a keynote speaker at our 2013 Investment Symposium in Vancouver last month. For the last several years, Anderson has played the dual role of entrepreneur and evangelist for the burgeoning “maker’s movement.” You can watch him discuss his theories about the new industrial revolution afoot in the movement with Tom Standage of The Economist.

Anderson noted the maker movement might have profound implications for human innovation—it might even be “bigger than the web.”

“Making stuff is a bigger market… it’s got more economic weight than making information… if this innovation model can transform making stuff the way it transformed making information, it could be bigger than the web.”
