Bringing Practical Pedagogy and Sustainable Enterprise to Makerspaces

This article by Will Holman ( @objectguerilla ) really resonated with me. Makerspaces really need all these things to help would-be makers develop their skills and create sustainable enterprises.

From https://placesjournal.org/article/makerspace-towards-a-new-civic-infrastructure/ :

The movement will need to embrace spaces that feature both traditional and advanced fabrication tools at affordable prices; that provide not only for tooling but also for assembly; that offer wrap-around business services for maker enterprises; that develop maker education into a rigorous pedagogy; and that help build a sustainable market for maker-made goods and services.
