Colorful Characters at the Maker Faire -- Instructables on NPR's California Report Answered

Instructables and Tim Anderson both were mentioned on NPR's California Report episode: Colorful Characters at the Maker Faire.


If you've ever met someone who likes to tinker around in their basement or garage, you know they can be a little eccentric. But the art of tinkering is being taken to a new level by the do-it-yourself movement. We preview this weekend's Maker Faire in San Mateo, where some of the DIY movement's most colorful practitioners are setting up shop. Reporter: Jon Kalish

It would also work for making pasta! I hope someone laughed in that interview - because they sure didn't convey how hilarious that is in the report :)

Hey, it's serious journalism...sounds like Tim has the enthusiasm and voice of Spongebob, it would also work for cold laminating your id cards...

Yes, but even serious journalism is capable of recognizing and acknowledging a joke :) Now if Tim was serious, I would love to see pasta cut in a hand cranked paper shredder (my previous experiments with "stuff in a shredder" resulted in tragic endings).

Chalk it up to the golf tournament commentator style requisite of public radio.
