Bits & Atoms by the Numbers – An Index of 26 “Customization” Companies

Pt 10676

Joe rounded up a ton of companies in what is usually called the “Maker space”, including Adafruit – nice collection -

I was in the hospital for a few days and while hooked up to machines that provided all sorts of vital signs I got inspired. This collection of charts provides the vital signs for the emerging “Bits & Atoms” economy where digital services and physical goods are fused in commerce. The world of “Bits & Atoms” or “Web Meets World” is still developing, but a couple big trends are popping up.

The Compete charts used seems to be way off for many of the sites – at least the ones that we know about – but the list is fantastic.

  1. Thanks for the kind words! I’ve updated the post to reflect the fact that the numbers are only rough trends and used your “State of the Fruit” post from November as proof. It is amazing how big communities can get with the right leaders and beliefs.
