    Bret Victor here discusses his notion that the primary challenge in building modern ‘Maker’ projects usually has less to do with putting the thing together and more to do with understanding behavior. For example, a robot that avoids light might not be technically complex to build so much as technically complex to design and optimize its behavior. As such he recommends makerspaces move away from a ‘machine tool club’ model and more towards a workshop for providing tools to analyze and predict behavior in the physical world.

    I don’t know how much I agree with him on that particular point, but I did find the design ideas interesting.
