Instructables on NPR's Weekend Edition Sunday March 9th, 2008

A story about online DIY culture including Instructables and an interview with me aired Sunday morning on NPR's Weekend Edition Sunday. It was right after the puzzle.

Instructables CEO Eric Wilhelm: The DIY aesthetic, at least sometimes, is about the subversive joy of making a prefab product "do something that it wasn't intended to."

So, if it is on at 8 EST, than it will be on at 5 PST, right? I'll have to get up before five to listen to its first airing. Okely doke.

The piece should be on this Sunday after the puzzle.
Hey, thanks for the reminder....I will have to put a note by my automobile radio (since I will be in the car at the time) to have that on (I listen to that station anyways, when I have the radio on). :-)
oo, I just remembered....this weekend is Bowl for Kids sake week. I might be busy at that time....
Awesome! I'll start my morning with Will Shortz, heal my lacrosse tournament wounds from Saturday, while listening to Eric! What a relaxing Sunday!
