  1. This is where I would have left constructive feedback in the past but after this episode I have learned the error of my ways. Thank you Lutes for teaching me that you cannot give feedback unless it is: a. Positive or b. You do the thing you are attempting to give feedback on. This episode was most instructional, thank you.

  2. Greetings from Germany and some thoughts on the topic of that podcast.
    I find it amusing, that the maker community engages in the same debate, we have in Germany with all “new” technology.
    Being 52 years old, I remember that kind of discussion from the 80s, when private television startet here.
    Some years later, same thing when microwaves startet to conquer our kitchens.
    “It’s not reall cooking!” “It’s bad for your health!” “It destroys the culture!”
    Then CDs came up in the massmarket. And guess what……
    Then mobile phones…. You get the picture.
    And now it’s CNC and Lasers and 3D-Printers in the Makerunivers.
    For me the, it’s the number of pieces of one kind you make and the fact, that you make them, that distinguish between handmade/manufactured and massproduction.
    I will risk my neck and use Jimmy DiResta as an example.
    I’m not interested in one of the icepicks, that are made in china. For me, they “have nothing to do with Jimmy DiResta”. They are just merchandise. But the lot he makes in his shop, is a different thing. Even if there several hundred around up to now. And it makes no difference, if he does his engraving with a dremeltool or his CNC. As long, as he does it (mostly) by himself. Things change in the moment, he employs someone for doing it.
