Why I think about this everyday:
Example: My brother-in-law is an engineer and someone that builds his future rather than dream about it. When he has an itch, he scratches it. When he needs a scraper for his espresso machine, he designs and prints one. Like a boss.
In a few years, when Joe Q. Dumbfuck has a novel product idea his first turn won’t be a Kickstarter campaign or a Shark Tank audition. It will be a website where he uploads the plans. Or he uploads the idea and for someone else to design it.
Right now you have to scratch an itch that thousands of other people immediately identify with. Soon it will just take a dozen.
