#Asia #China “Maker to Market” – China’s spin on the maker movement, with the legendary David Li


In this episode, we chat with David Li, the founder of China’s first Makerspace Xinchejian and the co-founder of the think-tank focusing on technological production Hacked Matter. Over the past 20 years, David has started several open source software projects and contributed to many others.

David shares his insights on the maker-manufacturer scene in China – a particular type of grassroots innovation led by makers and Shanzhai manufacturers through informal and open source systems. The term Shanzhai originally referred to cheap copy cats of brand products and particularly mobile phones in China’s hardware manufacturing center Shenzhen, but as David argues, has become way beyond copying.
