Welcome to our first edition of 2019. This is probably the first week back at work for many of you. Whether you are an indie startup founder or about to kick-off a new side project, we hope you have a great start to the year.

This week we met with several makers who have worked or are still working on physical products. These can seem daunting, but thanks to technological advances such as 3D printing many makers are now able to cross the chasm between digital and physical products.

Happy New Year, and see below for some of our best content this week. Want to be real buddies? Follow us on Twitter for daily updates, and hit reply if you want to contribute.
