I Am a Maker


I was thinking over the weekend that there are two great sources of joy in my life: my family and making things. I love to build, be it organizations, programs, woodworking projects, or my yard. So, it was with giddy anticipation that I opened the first issue of O'Reilly's new magazine "Make" when it arrived in my inbox this afternoon. I was not disappointed.

The magazine features multiple projects and dozen's of smaller articles about making things--everything from a backyard monorail to a system for attaching a camera to a kite and taking aerial photographs. This is the kinds of stuff that made Popular Electronics, (the original) Byte, and Circuit Cellar so much fun to get each month. I'm sure I'm going to enjoy this just as much.
