Anyone here consider themselves a 'maker'? This term is being increasingly used for a host of different hobbies out there. My own interests are in electronics and computing.

Be interested to hear from any others who may doing stuff like this.

So is it becoming popular to just replace "inventor" with "maker" or is there a minuet/significant difference between the two?

Let's say I want to do a project - say winding my own speakers, making the enclosure and crossovers. There is nothing in this list that is "inventing", but it sure is "making", so...
