This is one of the unfortunate legacies of the Industrial Revolution … The distance between the maker and the user is growing and, with it, knowledge, understanding and appreciation are diminishing … Making is very much part of the future . . Applied thinking lies at the core of creating new knowledge of all kinds … Art should not be separated from science, technology, engineering and mathematics.” Daniel Charny, “Thinking of Making,” 2011
