Newsweek article: Where Entrepreneurs Go Shopping

Good article in Newsweek that complements our reading for next class: In The Next Industrial Revolution, Atoms Are the New Bits.

I view this trend as evolutionary rather than disruptive.  Hobbyists have been around forever and there have been options for building prototypes in the past. 

However I do think that the TechShop is a clever business model.
