My name is Randy and I am a Community Manager in these here parts. In a previous life I had founded and run the Instructables Design Studio (RIP) @ Autodesk's Pier 9 Technology Center. I'm also the author of the books 'Homemade Robots,' and '62 Projects to Make with a Dead Computer'. I enjoy rideable robots, kaleidoscopes, microphotography, afternoon constitutionals, and baking. Subscribing to me = fun and excitement!
