Creation Consumption

Published on: Sat Apr 12 2014

There are two types of activities the individual participates in. Creation and Consumption. Typically, the consumer pays the creator i.e., Book reader buys from book writer. But how much??? An individual is typically both creator and consumer. We typically make our living as creators, either as part of a larger organization or as individuals. Sometimes we create information that is time consuming at first but then easily replicable. Other times we work to build a nonreplicable physical object. These are typically things that are owned. Each time we want another copy, the same amount of work must be put into its making, and the same amount of materials must be used. We work to create value in two ways. First, we are a rapid prototyping network that helps artists, writers and engineers create meaningful information. Second, we are crowd sourcing ideas and progress for novel ways to use technology and open source hardware.
