Become an instant Internet entreprenuer thanks to Ponoko and co.


The Internet lets us do all manner of things: send emails, write blogs and of course, run manufacturing businesses in conjunction with companies halfway across the world.

Wired reports that a growing number of entrepreneurs (who they cutely call “instapreneurs”) are using sites like Zazzle, which will make your design into a t-shirt for general retail, Blurb, which will knock you up a book and Ponoko, which will make up anything from a pair of earrings like the ones pictured above, to a large-scale item of furniture. And they will make as many or as few as you like.
