There is something extraordinary happening in the world. Over the last 20 years, the internet and smart phones accelerated innovation exponentially and changed the world as we know it. Now the third wave, the makers revolution has begun. Open hardware and easy access to tools are going to improve cities, homes, and our approach to health and food production. Most of these advances will emerge from companies that don't exist today--from teams of young entrepreneurs known as startups.
