Handmade 2.0, New York Times Magazine

it's a (long) article about Etsy.com and "the new craft movement." it's always weird to see something familiar summarized for the masses and enlarged to New York Times proportions.
Here is the article.
"Meanwhile there is also the more salient matter of how to make a rewarding, meaningful and satisfying living without having to give up on those ideals. The women who have led the craft movement don’t want to work for the Man. But many are also motivated by having reached adulthood at a time when the Man is slashing benefits, reneging on pensions, laying people off and, if hiring, is looking for customer-service reps and baristas. This is not a utopian alt-youth framework; it’s a very real-world, alt-grown-up framework."
