We don't need nations, we need thinkers.
May 25, 2012
When I take part in LMR activities, I forget the embarrassing things my country has done, as well as the great gifts we have given the world-it is as if the entire history of human foolishness disappears and all that is left is earnest minds cooperating to understand and create. Whether it is an Ohio engineer creating a custom schematic for someone else's pet project, or perhaps someone who knows the intricacies of Guandong manufacturing encouraging others to come visit, or maybe when a Mass. web shop owner sends a kid in Brooklyn $150 worth of goodies and then spends a week teaching him how to use them in 140 character bursts, or now the trans-Europa maker party invite- LMR is the kind of institution that the human race requires if we are to survive much into the future. The fact that people on every continent are sharing this way is the most surprising and welcome source of hope I've ever encountered-and the thing that unites us? Robots? Really? I think it has to be more than that, but I don't care if it is or isn't. I simply am glad to be a part of it.
Thank you, LMR.
