Has anybody else got this? Answered

I had an unexpected surprise today, I found this MAKE: book by the door addressed to me... (Thanks MAKE: team!) I was happy about that and I am enjoying reading this book, but then I am starting to wonder why did I receive this book...? And has anybody else unexpectedly got something from MAKE: or Instructables? (I know Goodhart got a T-Shirt from the members of Instructables.) (I can't post the picture on this forum, there is some weird error going on...)

Maybe you could post an Instructable for each gadget for those of us who are less awesome.

I would bet that Make saw one of your instructables, and thought it was soooo good, that they decided to feature it on one of their products. They sent you the book as royalty. idk really. but congrats!

What you described farther down ("MAKE: spytech") is actually issue 16 of MAKE Magazine. It came out in November; MAKE 17 is due out this month (February). Do you have a friend who might have bought you a subscription as a gift?

Lucky! MAKE: is awesome but they don't sell it in my country... Maybe Instructables thought your a brilliant member, used the contest to track your address and gave you a free MAKE: magazine.

It's probably because they wrote that story about you in the instructables book. Congrats on getting free stuff!

Have you won any contests? I got a Craft: book in the mail one day, and it took a lot of thinking to figure out what it was from.
