Eric Wilhelm on MPR's Midmorning, Friday June 25th at 9 AM CT Answered

I will be talking with Make's Editor-in-Chief, Mark Frauenfelder, about the rise of DIY culture on Minnesota Public Radio's Midmorning call-in talk-show tomorrow, June 25th at 9 AM CT.  You can call in at 1-800-224-2828, or submit online questions at MPR News.

DIY for lifestyle and livelihood
The term "do-it-yourself" used be the purview of home repair gurus or a subculture of crafty trendsetters. But the Internet and the recession have inspired more DIY-ers to make things for entertainment and profit.

* Mark Frauenfelder: Editor of Make magazine, his new book is called "Made by Hand: Searching for Meaning in a Throwaway World." He is also the editor-in-chief of the popular blog BoingBoing.net.
* Eric Wilhelm: CEO of Instructables.com

That was a nice interview, but the phone made you sound funny _ I kept getting little tiny flavours of Butthead and wanted you to go "uh huh huh huh huh huh huh"
