Hyperlocal Manufacturing

RESILIENT COMMUNITY: Forget Afghanistan, These are Needed in Detroit etc.

Hyperlocal manufacturing is real. Think of it as one of the economic hearts of a thriving resilient community. It’s a revolution already in motion, as you can see in the rapid spread of hackerspaces. Connect these hackerspaces, and the communities they serve, with networks that allow people to share, buy/sell, modify, customize, etc. designs for products/parts, and we are on our a way to a resilient decentralized economy that can survive the economic dislocation to come.
