The most interesting part of this book review of Chris Anderson's Makers: "Most of Anderson's product examples are the kids of things boys like to play with...."

Suddenly I feel like I need to do some research into criticisms of maker culture. The idea that much of it has fun or recreation as an aim doesn't repel me too much, but as we contemplate a maker-space for our new library, I do fear creating a space that reads as for only one gender.
