On Wednesday, President Obama hosted the White House's first Maker Faire, where he played with a 17-foot robotic giraffe and a 3D pancake printer. Obama said he hoped reviving the spirit of making stuff by hand would help spur manufacturing and innovation in America. The first Maker Faire was held in the Bay Area in 2006, founded by Dale Dougherty. Dougherty joins us in-studio to talk about the future of the Maker Movement as part of Forum's First Person series profiling Bay Area innovators and leaders who make our region unique.

Guests:

Dale Dougherty, founder of the Maker Faire, editor of MAKE magazine and co-founder of O'Reilly Media
