Chris Anderson's book "The Long Tail" chronicled how the Internet revolutionized and democratized distribution. His new book "Makers" shows how the same thing is happening to manufacturing, with even wider consequences, and this time the leading revolutionaries are the young of the world. Anderson himself left his job as editor of Wired magazine to join a 22-year-old from Tijuana in running a typical makers firm, 3D Robotics, which builds do-it-yourself drones.
