Practicality And User-Friendliness

A discussion of the Maker movement, which appears at its core to be a rejection of the control that machines currently have over us.

Which makes me think of the old comic book Magnus: Robot Fighter. It also calls to mind the video game Final Fantasy VIII, in which a bunch of individualists reject the ultra-modern life for a slightly more primitive one at a place called Fisherman's Horizon.

It's worth reading in its entirety.
