Connecting Scanners and Makers

I love Barbara Sher’s Scanner* network and the “Look what I’ve made” group. I also love her idea for a “Scanners, Steal my Idea” group, but I wonder…

[Here’s my main idea which I would love someone to steal]

For a while have been thinking that if  the Scanner community could get connected with communities of makers that would be even better than asking Scanners to steal our ideas. Makers – be they craftspeople, tradespeople, software or business developers – might be interested to steal and produce some of our ideas.

I am one of those Scanners who gets my joy from imagining fantastical new things. I have much less interest in building and creating (perhaps because it takes soooooo long). I would love to partner with makers who do love the work of making things.

* For those less familiar with Barbara’s work, Scanners are people with multiple interests and talents.  Also called multipotentialites by Emilie Wapnick in her TED talk
