Instructables Book now in hands of mere mortals...(spoiler alert) Answered
First off, naa-naa-na-na-na. I got my copy of the Best of Instructables, actually two that I purchased.
The first copy has been thumbed through so much it is getting dog-eared. I would say it is a good mix of topics even though so much had to be left out.
Which leads me to this rating, one thumbs up and one thumbs down.
Kiteman was only quoted once - the Ubiquitous Kiteman, dang, I'm gonna have to look that one up , and listed in the back index.
There was only a text list of winners for the favorites from the contest. No little pictures to show the final project.
There is an acknowledgement page listing people and projects that were cut due to page limitations. Don't feel bad, even Kipkay made it on the list.
There was a lot of stuff in the book I have not seen before so it just makes you want to wish for an easy way to scroll through everything on Instructables.
The most interesting thing is the little tidbit bio's on the instructable's author/creator. This is quite a diverse community.
I hope there will be a Volume II soon.
edit- It was pointed out that Kiteman also wrote one of the intros.
The book seems relatively Knex free except a few mentions in the contest listing. Good or bad depending on how you look at it.
