It never rains but it pours

So now there seem to be three separate makerspace initiatives in town, all serving more or less disparate potential communities — youth/educational/entry-level, light hacker/maker, heavy-equipment expert maker. In some ways those are useful divisions, because you don’t necessarily want to teach arduino classes in the middle of a machine shop. But I wonder how big an audience those segments have beyond the half dozen of us who are talking amongst ourselves.

(Then again, when I did a lego robotics camp this summer, to a parent the adults who came through the room were begging for resources to help them keep up with their kids, so maybe that segment is larger than I think.)

(Oops, just got more email, make that four. I wonder who else will come out of the woodwork.)
