Make Blog seeking Instructables Stories Answered

Make is looking for Instructable-related stories and experiences that you have yet to tell the world for sharing on the venerable Make Blog.

Gareth Branwyn writes:

We at Maker Media are thrilled to announce that we're going to be doing a Best of Instructables, Volume 1. As part of the book, we want to get the Instructables community involved in choosing some of their favorite projects. (...) We're also looking for build experiences and stories surrounding Instructables projects. If you built a project and have some thoughts about it (that you've yet to post to the project's page) or an interesting story about an Instructable (it got you a date, got your arrested, helped you survive for days in the Australian outback, made you a hero in the eyes of your kids, etc.) please send them to me, gareth (@makezine.com), or you can also post them here in the comments.

Why? Modesty? Stagefright? Fear of Monk producers nagging you about copyright?

A combination of all three, plus I just really am not comfortable with having any words of mine in print for...personal/social reasons, shall we say.

I'd like to see a story on that kid who wears a fried chicken bucket who made zillions of comments on every instructable and then went cold turkey

or the that guy that makes fun of him in cartoons and instructables...haha :P

You are obsessed with that kid. But, I agree with the second one, your cartoons would be a good topic.

It looks like someone wants to be in the book pretty badly.

and uses small text to make hints at it. :-). Just kidding. Sorta. Lol

Haha. There should be a whole section with The Bot Side.

I'm not sure how much of it would get lost outside of the community though. You would have had to be in some of the forums to get a lot of the jokes.

The instructions say build experiences and stories surrounding Instructables projects. Goodhart's t-shirt would be a great one, because it utilized the Instructables project interface to coordinate it.

You (caitlinsdad) should email gareth to see if he accepts a story such as the Bot Side.

I'd like to see a story about families on instructables (Kiteman and Kitewife, LinuxH4x0r TuxGirl and LinuxMom) maybe?
