Instructables

Eric Wilhelm and Christy Canida on Popular Mechanics

Check out Christy Canida & Eric Wilhelm on Popular Mechanics website for the article:

 
"More than the work he did at MIT while earning a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering, it was his passion for kite surfing that led Wilhelm to create Instructables. Launched in 2005 with his wife, Christy, and colleagues at the design firm Squid Labs, the DIY website quickly became a forum for step-by-step instructions—the kind Wilhelm had been distributing to fans of his handmade boards and sails. The site, which was bought by Autodesk in 2011, now features more than 100,000 user-generated projects in fields from cooking to woodworking to electronics."

Didn't realize the American Dream also included parts of Mexico and Canada.

That's why it is being reinvented :) I also like to think of the American Dream as a concept that has been broadened beyond just being America and more about the dream.
