Jump to navigation Jump to search

Makers of the Future is a proposed theme for FSCONS 2010 the 6-7th of November 2010 in Gothenburg, Sweden.


RepRap is a "rapid prototyping system that is capable of producing its own parts and can therefore be replicated easily". The philosophy of the free software movement: being able to use, share and improve software, gets a real life counterpart in the Hackerspaces, Fablab, Makerbot, RepRap and Open Source Ecology communities. Turning every citizen into a creator is a central issue of this theme, which will explore both the underlying philosophy as well as the actual means of creation.


The responsibility is defined generally for all themes in the FSCONS 2010 Themes page.
