Congratulations on all the success, my only question is, didnt they need permission from the posters of the projects to put up their copyrighted pictures?

They absolutely did, and in each of the instances above the author gave their permission.

I am in the process of purchasing an old foreclosed school to create a youth center for incarcerated youth. A non for profit organisation to train youth to make a living for themself after they are out of the system. My question are : Is it possible to install solar panel for a school building and do you know of any organization that will be willing to donate the panel towards to our non for profit organization?

Yes No and hard sell.
Yes you could at least go partly off grid.
No I don’t know who would sponsor your project.
It would be a hard sell sponsors might fear reoffending and bad press.

I would encourage you to post this as a forum topic, not as an off-topic comment in somebody else's forum. You'll get much more visibility, and some good input on your questions.

You need to start a new forum topic, so that folk realise you are asking a new question.

Follow this link, and hit the button that says "new topic".

Make sure you are clear about what help you need, so that you get more useful comments, and don't forget to browse the site, because there are hundreds of plane projects already published.

Hi all,

Some of you might be interested in an article on "rugged consumerism" published in the most recent PMLA (an academic journal devoted to the modern languages), which relates Instructables and other maker communities to contemporary American literature.

23rd Feb, 2012, Saul Griffiths has just been on BBC TV's "Horizon" programme, talking about nuclear fusion as the future of human energy resources.

He was talking from the control tower that used to house Instructables.

Hey. I just found the foldable/portable doggy bowl Instructable on page 53 of the June 16 issue of Newsweek.

It's in the "Pets" column about how dogs need a lot of water in the hot summer. It shows 2 links where you can buy portable dog bowls, then it says you could make it yourself at the Instructables link.
