HackerMaker is the culture and philosophy of creating, repairing and inventing out of whatever is available. Raw materials are no longer the raw materials with which we work.
Our prime materials have been extracted, cooked, processed, moulded and shaped cheaply and in large qualities to fit some purpose other than ours.
