Moritz Metz came by KOBA this week to ask my perspective on the German maker-scene for Deutschlandfunk Kultur. The question whether making and DIY are new... or just internet-worked versions of age-old traditions. And why is CNC milling "making" but flatbed knitting not? And what about all these materials we're making with!? I want to know more about where these are coming from and how to deal with them when I'm done with them.
