Hackerspace LA is part of the Maker Movement and revolution of millions of people across the world who are taking big risks to start their own small business dedicated to creating and sell self-made products. In today’s world of mass-produced cheap items, technology has made it easier for single individuals to create and distribute quality products that are custom made without having middlemen like manufactures or big corporations. This change in local manufacturing will continue to have an effect on the economy for years to come and will see many improvements in the local economy.
