What is the Maker Movement?

Maker Movement - contemporary culture or subculture representing a technology-based extension of do it yourself culture; stresses new and unique applications of technologies and encourages invention and prototyping; a strong focus on using and learning practical skills and applying them creatively.

The article "What is the Maker Movement and Why Should I Care" by Gary Stager is a great place to start thinking about this topic.
