Left over Campaign Signs Answered

I just heard on NPR that this year's combined electoral candidates collectively spent over 4 billion dollars on advertising this year.  I believe about half of that is on those ubiquitous road side campain signs that now litter seemingly all roadways.  Any ideas on what to make/ recycle/ upcycle them to?

Purdue University -- I AM A MAKER

From NBitWonder by way of the MAKE blog, Purdue University has made Makers their Homecoming theme: I think work should be about making things work. Better. Faster. Smaller. Smarter. So I build bridges between what's known and what's not. I tinker. I toil. I write poetically in an abundance of languages (including code). I hack. I dissect. I have an insatiable desire to un-complicate the complicated. I am easily inspired. I believe that just because it hasn't been thought of doesn't mean it won't be. Potential is my thrill ride. Imagination is my most-used tool. I am a maker, and I am what moves the world forward. First Obama, now this. What's the world coming to, anyway? Something good, I hope!

Contest offering a LIX 3D pen - a no show for thousands of backers for last 2 years !

How odd to find a contest (https://www.instructables.com/contest/firsttimeauthor/) offering a LIX 3D Pen as a prize when thousands of backers on their KickStarter campaign are still waiting to get theirs after some two years of run around and non-delivery of the paid for rewards, very same 3D Pen. Insctructables might want to retract LIX as a sponsor given they have not been able to deliver their product to thousands of individuals over last two years.  They cercainly have not earned any (free) advertisement from anyone.

ASUS EeePC review and Laser Etching

Asus, a sponsor of Instructables, has put together WePC where they are asking for input on their next generation laptops. As part of their sponsorship, they've asked my opinion on various aspects of laptops. Most recently ASUS EeePC review and Laser Etching.As part of this campaign, Asus was kind enough to lend me an EeePC. I gave it to an intern at Instructables, Matthew Dalton, who was really excited to try it out for note taking in class, and general portable computer usage -- his review follows below. Since I've been writing about how important it is to customize your laptop, I also asked Matthew to give the EeePC a laser tatoo, and you can see the results were beautiful! Matthew' review continues here.Finally, I'd like to know what you have thought about this Asus campaign. If you would be kind enough to take this survey, I would really appreciate it.

PETA's exploitation of Autism Spectrum

PETA is misinforming the public about autism and thus joining a long line of unscrupulous groups that have sought to try and spread fear about autism as a means of pushing their particular agendas."

Small change release

Just a few changes this time around.  You'll notice the header - we made it a bit shorter to use less screen real estate, and less ... orange (personally I liked the orange but many found it distracting). The main thing is that we've opened up Guide writing to all Pro users.  We're soft-starting this, it's not being announced anywhere but here as yet, so we can start out easy and see how it goes.  Guides are awfully useful and we figure more should be better but it's also good to start small sometimes. Also we're starting a new ad campaign with Dremel and there's some special content we had to prepare for that.  You'll see it very shortly!

Interesting bservation regarding current political events (UK)

A referendum on 5 May 2011 will ask UK voters whether they want to change how MPs are elected in General Elections. Instead of just voting for one candidate voters could rank candidates in order of preference, and these preferences could be used to decide the outcome in places where no candidate wins more than 50% of votes cast. (BBC Explanation of AV) Interesting to note... The UK has three main political parties. Two of them are campaigning against AV, claiming, amongst other things, that AV would make no real difference to election results. However... Both parties use AV-style processes to elect their leaders. And... If both parties had used first-past-the-post, both parties would have different leaders to those they now have.

Latest Kickstarter

Hey Everyone, It’s been a year since I last launched a project on Kickstarter. Now that the dust has settled from the all the excitement (and learning curve), my brother and I are jumping back into the arena. I took all the documentation from “Doughnut Safe” and put it into a new campaign. Other ideas are in the works so keep your eyes peeled. But in the meantime please let me know what you think. Good, bad, and ugly. And if you're feeling it, share the link.  https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/699604098/doughnut-safe If you have a project you’re considering doing yourself, I’m happy to give any advice I can. The beauty of it all is if people want it, it’ll show and you can use the funds from there. If there’s not enough interest in it then all that’s lost is a little pride. Much better than spending thousands on a patent or production with no traction. Thanks, Brent.

Cross Marketing Idea for Instructables

I was checking out the instructable for the coffee bag wallet and had a great idea. You know how grocery stores have recipe cards seeded around the store? I think  Instructables should hook up with Target stores and make recipe cards of  recycling crafts,  placed in front of the product areas. In the past I have seen Target run a recipe card campaign on their own, versus relying on product manufacturers to place the cards and i know they are a perfect fit for the demographic of both this website and their market. Imagine how many altoids tins, coffee bags they could move!!  Another idea - Ikea! - How many times are those lack tables used in projects? Tons! for Ikea, an instore "re-craft show" would be super cool! Did anyone ever see all the marketing that Gallo wines put into bottle reuse - or their booth at Makerfaire? Made me go out an buy a bottle... It's all win-win!
