Meet Your Makers Anyone who grew up on tinker toys or erector sets knows the pleasure of making things. Now, millions of American are rediscovering that feeling, and turning a profit. The maker movement, a coalition of entrepreneurs, inventors, and crafty types who make things from gadgets to clothes to food, are shaking up the economy. Some makers argue Cleveland embodies what the movement is all about. Photo credit: Andrew Salamone.
