Looking for Makers to do Research Interview
Hello! I'm doing research on people who make things (artists, hackers, crafters, etc.). I'm a graduate student at Carnegie Mellon and an intern this summer at Yahoo Research. I'm talking to people about one of their projects where they tried to make something new, something they hadn't tried before. The interview is about how the project got started, where they found helpful information, interesting things that happened, how they felt about it at the end, etc. The goal of this research is to understand the role of online resources in the process of making.
Would you be interested in participating?
The interview is about an hour or so. If you're in the bay area, we can meet in a convenient place for a casual conversation about your work and experiences. If you're not in the area or that's not convenient, we can chat on the phone or over IM. We have gift certificates to thank participants for their time. Contact me via instructables or email me at email@example.com with any questions at all.
