Instructables Internship - Day 1 Answered
Hello from Instructables HQ!*
Last Saturday, I flew down to visit Instructables. I stayed and poked around San Fransisco over the weekend, but today I started my Instructables internship!
(Sadly, I left my camera at home, and I don't have nearly as many pictures as I'd like)
I arrived at the control tower, and was greeted by [/member/numberrandom Mitch] and [/member/fungusamungus Ed], and [/member/candia Christy] & [/member/ewilhelm Eric] arrived shortly thereafter.
I was shown around the place, and then I started to get working. I got to take [/member/noahw Noah]'s desk, since he's out for the week. (Probably chasing [/member/T3h_Muffinator Muffinator] to get Project X's instructable done...)
Soon, [/member/rachel/ Rachel] walked in, and helped me get a copy of the database working, so I could start working on site-related things.
While the computer was chugging away (as it did for the rest of the day), I walked around and met [/member/randofo Randy], and a few other people.
Randy explained to me some of the cool things that he's working on, and I offered to help. Somehow, we stumbled upon the idea of drying clothes by microwaving them, and we were really close to actually trying it...
Later, I started assembling and documenting [/member/ladyada Ladyada]'s (seealso) TV-B-Gone kit. I didn't get to finish it before the day ended -- it just flew by!
Everything was going great. I had been extremely excited for this opportunity, and its even better than I thought. Everyone seems interested in each other's projects. Its really cool.
I can't wait until tomorrow, where I hope I get to do more exciting and fun stuffs!
Yes, I said stuffs!
* okay, I'm not there right now...
