Instructables Internship - Day 1

Hey Everyone!I just arrived in Oakland from New York last Saturday, at 10:30 AM. Canida and Tetranitrate arrived shortly thereafter to pick me up from the airport. Over the weekend, we went camping. Not something that you would expect out of an Internship, but here at Instructables, anything can happen. The trip was awesome, camping up in the very scenic Sierras was simply astonishing. I'll include some pictures of the trip at the end of this post.Today was my first day at Instructables HQ. After about 20 mintues in the Control Tower, I realized how awesome the rest of my stay would be. The environment here at Instructables is unbelievable. Everyone, and I do mean everyone is super-friendly. Instructables is seemingly just a large family, of which every member seamlessly gets along with every other member. This doesn't only apply to the website, but also to the staff here at HQ. Instructables is unlike any other Internship/program that I've been to/participated in. At first glance (after the tour, of course), Instructables has actually surpassed my expectations. I was expecting to see a lot of which I had already seen in the photos of HQ on Flickr and Instructables, but there is just so much more. There's so much to see, do, and get totally sidetracked on just while walking around. I'm just amazed that I'm here, and that I got the opportunity to work for such an awesome company.So, on to the details. I'm set up on a table in front of a huge window that looks out at the front entrance. I get "free lunch", because I joined "The Salad Club". That entails me making at least one lunch for everyone sometime during my two-week internship, and every other day I get to eat food that someone else is making for all of us, etc. etc... I get time, everyday, to do what I want to do, where "what I want to do" is defined by building something. Again, this is something that you would never expect from an internship. So, basically I work half the day, finding people that would potentially like to join the site, getting their e-mails, and telling Tetranitrate about them, and then the other half of the day I'm building. This is pretty much the sweetest deal that I could ever think of. 1/2 of the day, I get to look at cool DIY projects that people post on the internet, and the other half I get to build. I think that everyone should know how awesome Instructables really is. They really love their work, their company, and what they are giving to the How-To Community as a whole.Anyway,I'm so glad to be here, and I really can't believe that I am here, yet.-Muffinator

Instructables Internship - Day 4

Alo Again,Well, this morning I didn't have the opportunity to burn my PB sandwich, not only because it was a PB&J; sandwich, but because the oven was filled with semi-burnt roasted tomatoes/garlic.Anyhow, Today I did some more outreach for the new Launch It! Contest and... drumroll please.... Billy and I shipped all of the remaining Laser Cutter Contest Winners' prizes! Woo Hoo! Other than that, the morning was pretty chill. I'm getting used to the much more relaxed setting here at Instructables. At all of my other internships I've had, everything was always so fast-paced, tense, and ridiculously demanding. At Instructables, everyone's just Chill. Everyone enjoys what they're doing. It's awesome.Also, I downloaded the Instructables MySQL dumpfile from Rachel, and I'm in the process of getting it back into MySQL. Eventually, I'm going to try and make some cool new statistic features for you guys!Billy and I tested out some LEDs and my ultra-thin/flexible solar panels, which are hella awesome. The specs say that they get 3V @ 22 mA max in the sunlight, but yesterday, I got that in the shade. In the sunlight?: 4.19V!After that, Jason, Billy, Noah and I checked out the Water Jet in Instructables' machine shop. Billy had to cut some stuff for a project of his, but watching the machine "do its thing" was really cool. There's so much awesome stuff here, I still can't believe it.Noah, Jason, and I then picked out some stuff that was going to get thrown out to use in Proj. X, and we ordered the Surgical Tubing, too!Then, Jason, Mike (Works for Potenco), and I went to the beach to check out the kite boarders, and fly the trainer kite. (Eventually, we'll get to kite board, too!)Alright, I think that I'm actually going to go get started on Proj. X now...I've included some pictures that I've taken throughout the day.Cheers,-MuffinatorP.S. I came up with an awesome badge idea, and I'll draw it up today on the computer. I'll post it by tonight, so make sure you tell me if you like it or not!

Instructables Internship - Day 8

Wednesday: Jason's Last v_vToday was Jason's (derangedmoose7) Last Day, so we pretty much just spent all of it working on Project X. It's come along so far, it's truly quite amazing how quickly it was originally put together and how long it's taking to tweak it in order to get what we really want. I feel bad keeping Proj. X a secret from all of you, it would be awesome to tell you what we're doing every day, but It's gotta be kept a secret until it's released.By the way, Wednesday was my and Noah's salad club day. Unfortunately, I forgot to bring the muffin stuffs... AGAIN.... I'm such an idiot....Luckily, Noah brought salad stuffs and we made lunch together, again, I got to chop! I also played around with my solar panels a bit, diffusing the LEDs and getting new LEDs, too. I made one earring, but it doesn't work very well... The LEDs light, but they're not bright... at all. I'm thinking about putting a cap on there so that they charge, and then some sort of tansistor that will clamp when there isn't sufficient light, the LED's flash for a split second, grabbing everyone's attention. Sounds good, doesn't it?!Hmmm... what else? I was planning on playing with the laser cutter today, but alas, I was working on Proj. X with Jason, that that'll have to wait for tomorrow. OH! THAT'S RIGHT! I made the Badge templates Wednesday night! HOW COULD I FORGET ABOUT THOSE?well, going out to see scenic Oakland. gotta go!Cheers,-Muffinator

Instructables Internship - Day 2

Hello Again!Well, it's been Day 2 for me, here at Instructables, and truthfully; I'm having a blast!So, what'd I do today? Well, I cut A TON of stickers out for the launch of the new Instructables Store. I did some more "outreach" work (mainly having to do with the science fair contest), and I tried to find places where I could get some surgical tubing for the top-secret project ;).I also started working on posting 2 new instructables that I have already built, they should be up in a reasonable amount of time, hopefully.I found out another thing about Instructables, today. Everyone is excited about everyone else's work. You see, Billy (Tetranitrate) has this new project that he's working on, which is actually going to be super-super-awesome, and everyone's just so interested in his progress, it's pretty amazing. Even with site updates and layouts and stuff, everyone is so interested in everything, it's just awesome. I've been at other internships where the employees don't even get along, but here, they collaborate in getting stuff done. Oh boy, I love it here just a bit too much.OH, That's right! I worked on some images for the new, yes, I said new, homepage layout/design! I'm actually really excited about it, mostly because I'm bored of looking at all of the same images EVERY SINGLE TIME I come to the site, and also because I get to pick some of what's going to be used on the new homepage. You know, the best part of interning here is being able to give back to Instructables, and the DIY Community as a whole. However, being able to do what you want after lunch is pretty sweet, too. Tomorrow, I think Noah (NoahW) and Jason (The other intern) and I are going to pick up our materials, pick up some muffin mix for salad club and other assorted foodstuffs, and get to work on our top-secret project.Btw, I started thinking up a design for Instructables badges, and depending on when I learn how to use the laser cutter, I'll make 'em ASAP!Cheers,-Muffinatorp.s.: Sigh, I burned my Peanut Butter Sandwich this morning.... The picture looks nice, though...

Instructables Internship - Day 3

Hello Again!So, What did I do today...During breakfast this morning I wrote up yesterday's log, which was exciting yet depressing... because of the burnt Peanut Butter Sandwich... no, that wasn't the top-secret project, DON'T WORRY!Other than that...hmm, well, initially, I just made some new "homepage images," then Billy and I attacked the semi-old yet miserably slow laptop that was attached to the "new" laser cutter and cleaned that out. Yeah, we made it run nice and fast =)After that, NoahW and I went out to Trader Joe's for Salad Club shopping. Yep, today was our day to cool lunch!Noah brought his mini-barbecue and we bbq'ed steak, chicken, and tofu! YUM! We also prepared a HUGE salad, which I'm not used to, 'cause I've never made salad before. For all of you who don't know how to make salad, basically, you get to kill a bunch of vegetables with a large, sharp, blade... VERY ENTERTAINING!Unfortunately, I forgot the muffin tin from "home" (Eric and Christy's House), so I wasn't able to bake muffins... there's always next week, though!After lunch, Jason, Noah, and I went out to home depot to get supplies for the top-secret project... I think I'll call it Proj. X, from now on. Anyway, we got all of the materials that we're going to need for Proj. X except for the surgical tubing V_v... it was just too darned expensive, so we're just going to order it online.However, tomorrow, we can start building! YAY!I'm starting to write up a new Instructable on my Hypercube Bubble maker, which should be published relatively soon. I'M EXCITED!I've also started on a template for the Instructables Badges, hopefully those will be rolling out of the laser cutter relatively soon, too!Umm... what else? Well, I MIGHT be able to make Cotton Candy Machine (Mark III) here! Unfortunately, I'm not allowed to use any of the heavy machinery (ie. the lathe), so I'll teach Billy how to use it and he could make my parts for me! This, However, depends on how much time I have to spend on projects, and if I'm willing to buy the aluminum (= a lot of $)Just for any of you who hadn't read my previous posts, I'm having the time of my life here at Instructables, and if you end up producing really nice Instructables, you might get the opportunity to intern, too! Remember, if there's a will, there's a way!Cheers,-MuffinatorP.S. I've included a picture of the view from my room. Yeah, I know, I had to make it all artsy... it's the Oakland Skyline at Night. It looks pretty cruddy in the "preview", so take a look at the full-sized image by clicking on the "I" in the upper left hand corner on the picture.

I need some help in Tennessee shooting videos

I have LOTs of ideas, research, and projects.  unfortunatly I don't have a lot of time, money, or help.  My wife and I just had a baby, so my camerawoman is now performing mommy duties so I am looking for someone to help me in the mad scientist lab. I have some ideas for shooting some disaster scenario videos, how to, training (mostly firearms related), cooking (cheese, bread, fermention), beekeeping, and all sorts of urban homestead type stuff. I cannot pay at this time, but depending on the person, and what they bring to the table I am willing to negotiate for a more permenant arraigement. What I suggest is that if your interested take a look at my website, and if you think it is useful, and that you can enhance it shoot me an email or message me here. If your really good, I can offer you firearm classes in trade, up to and including instructor certifications for those that are qualified.

Instructables Internship Days 5-6 (Including the weekend!)

Hi everyone,Sorry I didn't post on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, but I'll make up for that now.So, Friday:I arrived at Squid Labs knowing that today was a special day. Today would be the day that construction on Proj. X would commence. Jason and I layed out the materials and began building, taking pictures every step on the way. We assembled the main component by lunch time, and installed about 66% of the other components by the end of the day. Noah helped us out a bunch, figuring out where certain components should go and how to attach others to the "mainframe."The (construction) work environment at Squid Labs is awesome! We pretty much just dragged our materials outside and started working. You really can do whatever you want, whenever you want; it's truly amazing. I'm pretty sure that Today was the day that I realized how much I'd be willing to drop out of school and just work for Instructables. I don't really think it's a great idea, but I'd certainly be happy working full-time for Instructables, no doubt about it!I really didn't do much else today, Jason and I pretty much just worked on the.... on Proj. X (Caught myself, whew!) all day!Now, onto the weekend!Friday, Billy and I decided that we would go into the city (San Francisco) via BART/Bike on Saturday. Saturday has come, and it's finally time for me to go to S.F.After Christy dropped off Billy and I (with our bikes) at the BART station, we rode BART all the way to the city. Christy also gave us 2 tickets to go to the S.F. MOMA, which was awesome. There was this one drawing that I really, really liked. Unfortunately, I can't remember the artist or the title of the work, although I'm pretty sure it's entitled, "Untitled." There was also this really odd exhibit, which was...just generally odd. Imagine a house. Now, rip all of the walls out of the house, rotate the whole structure that you ripped out equally over the X and Y axis, and then shove it through the walls of MOMA.... yeah, it was pretty damn weird. Then they guy drilled and off-center hole in a record and that was playing on a timer, so it went really fast, then slow, etc etc. In the next room, there were about 20 pictures of what we just saw... Again... just odd.Anyway, after MOMA, I decided that it would be really awesome to see the Golden Gate Bridge, so Billy and I rode our bikes down toward the piers, and we'd then take "The Embarcadero" to the bridge. So, as we were passing Pier 39, my left pedal stripped out of its socket, leaving me no way to "bike" to the Bridge. Luckily, it broke off at pier 39, which just-so-happened to be a "tourist pier." Billy and I hung out there for most of the day. During lunch we "fed" a bunch of birds; pigeons, little birds, and a really mean seagull...After we realized that we would have to walk all the way back to the BART station, we started on our journey back. Awesomely, on the way, we came upon a really tranquil-looking park and a square with a huge, awesome sculpture. The sculpture had a bunch of gigantic concrete "square tubes" that jutted out of its huge base. There was water flowing out of almost everything, and steppingstones that allowed the viewer to walk underneath the immense structure. The only two words that I could describe it with are simply awesome.We arrived back at the original BART station, Christy picked me up, we ate dinner, and went back home.Sunday:Sunday was just awesome. Mitch and Erica took me Surfing with Mike, Jason, and Jason's Sister. Although the waves were small, it was a beautiful day, and we had an awesome time. For lunch, Awesome Mike brought his mini-propane grill and we had hot-dogs on the beach. After lunch, we went back into the water to surf a bit more and then left. Surfing was a blast!Back at "home," we watched "Sunshine," a sci-fi movie about a team of scientist/astronauts on a mission to deliver a bomb into their dying sun, to create a new sun within the old. Most of the movie was actually pretty good, but I thought the ending just... sucked outright. I won't ruin it for you, but you really don't need to see the movie. During the movie, though, Christy whipped up some Rhubarb Pie! YAY!Back to work - MondayYesterday, in the morning I made the "How to Create Homepage Images" Instructable, which I suggest you check out if you want to contribute to the website's homepage. We're giving you the opportunity to make homepage images that we'll actually use on the homepage... if they're good enough ;). After, Jason and I pretty much finished up Proj. X, but we will require some time in the afternoon on Tuesday to finalize construction. This thing is going to be AWESOME!In other news, Billy and I are going to "The Googleplex" tomorrow (Tuesday) to give a small talk with Christy, which I'm really excited for. At first I didn't expect that they'd want interns to go talk to Google, but Christy and Eric explained why they want us to go. Google wants the opinions of the users. Billy and I promise to speak well of everyone, and speak on everyone's behalf. I've gotta go, we're leaving soon!Cheers,-Muffinatorp.s. I burned my PB and Banana sandwich again v_v...

Instructables Internship - Day 9 (AWESOME DAY!)

Thursday: AWESOME DAY!Thursday was just AWESOME! So basically, I learned how to use the Laser cutter today, and cut out THE FIRST INSTRUCTABLES BADGE EVER!(pic after post)After, I worked with Noah on Project X a whole little bit more, and we got it working, baby!I'm excited to see this thing go for real! But seriously, I can't tell you what it is, yet...Today was also the first day that I really got used to COREL draw, which enabled me to make most of the templates for everyone's badges, which I think are all pretty awesome. Everyone's got a customized "logo" and their username on the badge, which makes every Instructables badge original and personalized. Unfortunately, I didn't have time today to etch all of the badges, so that'l just have to wait until tomorrow.Later in the afternoon, Star asked me if I wanted to go sailing, to which I responded "What?" After I agreed to spontaneously go sailing with her and Tim, she brought me outside, where I learned that we were fixing up Tim's old outrigger canoe that he tried to sail to Cuba in. Tim, Star, and I were all working on the outrigger; lashing a makeshift trampoline on with bike innertubes... actually, most of the frame was held together with bike innertubes, including the rudder. Everyone was skeptical about us actually launching at all, assuming that we wouldn't launch in the dark of the night. Although, lucky for us, we were all "crazy" enough to launch in the dark. We geared up in fleeces, windbreakers, and life vests and hauled the outrigger out by hand (it was on castings), and launched it right next to Squid Labs. At first, Tim sailed us out of "port" (in the lagoon) and out into the Bay. It was spectacular. The moon, the stars, the SF skyline, it was all beautiful. Tim told us of his experiences on the outrigger while he was sailing back from almost Cuba, and proceeded to teach us more about boats in general. He then let Star take over the rudder and sail, while he lay down on the main hull. I was lying down on the makeshift trampoline, an old stretcher, by the way. We watched the stars over our heads, and, at first, the occasional passing of a brown pelican. Eventually, we came pretty close to "pelican island," a protected breeding ground for the brown pelican. Yet, the night was still young. We continued to listen to Tim speak about sailing, occasionally contributing to the conversation as well. It was all fascinating, not only what he told us, but the fact that the source of his knowledge was primarily himself. The other amusing part of the entire moonlit ride was the fact that Tim built the outrigger from essentially scratch, and most of it was lashed together with innertubes. Simply amazing. Eventually, I was given the opportunity to take control of the beautifully made outrigger canoe, and sailed us back from the bay, back into the lagoon, and back onto land. The whole trip was a once in a lifetime experience, although I hope I do get to go on a similar one soon enough. Thank you so much, Tim, for taking me out onto the bay, and thank you so much Star, for asking me if I wanted to go sailing in the first place. By the way, we got back to Squid at around 10:00, I believe, which was again, pretty late for a workday ;)I packed up my things and Tim/Star drove me home.That was pretty much it for that awesome day. Quite possibly the best day in the duration of this entire Internship.Cheers,-Muffinator

Internship Search

Hello, I am in search of companies that offer internships to high school graduates going into college as a way to gain experience. The problem is that companies I want to intern for all want (Idaho Power, Union Pacific Railroad) college experience and previous college education in that field. I am primarily interested in the industry side of things, because I want to see how things work and experience them myself. The industry is considered “dangerous” so therefore I have not been able to find any companies willing to offer internships to high school graduates. I really don’t care about pay, because I am only interested in education as of right now and this would be very valuable. I would prefer local companies, but I would be willing to go out of state. What I really want to know is: How can I convince companies to let me shadow an employee or be an unofficial intern? Do you need documentation from companies that you interned with them when writing college resumes? What sort of companies would be interesting (Idaho Power, Union Pacific, Norco, etc.)? Anything else you may be able to suggest. Thanks!

Instructables Internship - Day 5

Today was my last day! I really wish I could stay, but school should come first...The day was really awesome though. I knew I had to make the most of this last day I get to be here. I bore the Robot proudly on my chest, hoping to get a picture that I could use as my avatar here, but never remembered to take a picture...I came in today, and started working on my Vorbis player. The day before, it was all soldered up (I actually was able to do it!) and now I needed to get it working. Based on some probing, at least the voltage regulator part works, but I think I need to do a bit more to determine if its in complete working condition. I also spent some time trying to program an AVR, I eventually got it working, though. I continued to do some more DB stuff, and, as you saw, posted a few statistics. I came up with a few more, but we couldn't figure out how to get them to display...---It was really sad when I had to leave, I had such a great time... I'll miss being there...This concludes zachninme's internship blog

Instructables Internship - Day 3

Day 3! Whoo!(The hotel's internet wasn't working, so I had to wait until now to post)Today was another bright cough day at Instructables HQ. I continued working on some small little projects of my own, as well as poking the database and forcing it to spit out the exact information that I wanted. (later, I wrote a script to do all the poking for me)The new rating system will be much better, taking more into account than just a click, which will lead to more accurate ratings, which means you'll all get even more awesome instructables! Horray!!!!!Its amazing being here, though. Everyone's so great and helpful, its really hard to put into words... I feel lucky to be here!And don't worry, you'll get a blog post for today, too!

Instructables Internship - Day 1

Hello from Instructables HQ!*Last Saturday, I flew down to visit Instructables. I stayed and poked around San Fransisco over the weekend, but today I started my Instructables internship!(Sadly, I left my camera at home, and I don't have nearly as many pictures as I'd like)I arrived at the control tower, and was greeted by [/member/numberrandom Mitch] and [/member/fungusamungus Ed], and [/member/candia Christy] & [/member/ewilhelm Eric] arrived shortly thereafter. I was shown around the place, and then I started to get working. I got to take [/member/noahw Noah]'s desk, since he's out for the week. (Probably chasing [/member/T3h_Muffinator Muffinator] to get Project X's instructable done...)Soon, [/member/rachel/ Rachel] walked in, and helped me get a copy of the database working, so I could start working on site-related things.While the computer was chugging away (as it did for the rest of the day), I walked around and met [/member/randofo Randy], and a few other people. Randy explained to me some of the cool things that he's working on, and I offered to help. Somehow, we stumbled upon the idea of drying clothes by microwaving them, and we were really close to actually trying it...Later, I started assembling and documenting [/member/ladyada Ladyada]'s (seealso) TV-B-Gone kit. I didn't get to finish it before the day ended -- it just flew by!Everything was going great. I had been extremely excited for this opportunity, and its even better than I thought. Everyone seems interested in each other's projects. Its really cool.I can't wait until tomorrow, where I hope I get to do more exciting and fun stuffs! Yes, I said stuffs!* okay, I'm not there right now...

Day two!Today, I would get to meet everyone who didn't show up yesterday. (It was, after all, Presedent's Day) When I got in, I hopped on the computer and started poking at my copy of the database. I know this isn't exicting for most people, but as someone who's worked through and designed a few DB's that never were populated, it was a chance to not only learn style, but play around with a ton of data. You guys are really busy!As I was working hard on my queries, I would continue work on the TV-B-Gone, and talked to Randy some more. Its so awesome meeting and talking to people in real life, and hearing and seeing their projects that are works and progress, some which may never make it to instructables.I couldn't stop laughing at Christy's attire, which has to do with a little project of hers and Eric's, and Mitch's that is going on this week, but you're going to have to wait until they make an instructable!Later in the day, I kept at all my projects, joked around (just a little! I swear!), and eventually finished the TV-B-Gone kit! Later. I was able to test it and it actually worked! I also got to use the laser cutter. I want to try cutting a perforated pattern, like a checkerboard, only *really* small. All and all, today was an awesome day, and I can't wait to get back tomorrow!wow! so excited, I'm making sooo many typos!

Instructables Internship - Day 7 (Day @ Google!)

Sorry to keep you guys waiting, I've just been so busy having fun, etc ;)So, without any further adieu, Tuesday through Thursday! (in four separate posts, so that I don't overwhelm you)Tuesday: Google Day!So, yes, it's true. I got to go to Google to talk a bit about Instructables. Yes, it's true, I'm a terrible speaker. And yes, it's true, Google is awesome!I had so much fun at Google, I'm so glad that we (Billy and I) were able to go. We got to see Stan, the t-rex standing outside in the courtyard. We got free foodstuffs and shwag. We saw SpaceShipOne (I think it was a model, though), and had a great time. It's really cool inside Google; everyone's desk has something strange on it, some people are even in "tents." it's just wacky to the max. Unfortunately, my camera died after a few minutes in Google, so I wasn't able to take too many pictures for you guys v_v sorry.There's actually a video of about 1/2 of the talk up on Google Video, and it's already on the Instructables Blog hereAfter Google, we went back to Squid Labs, where Jason and I worked on and pretty much finished up Project X. All we need now is some fine-detail work and it'l be done!So, it turns out that Tuesday was the annual Squid Labs' Intern Barbecue Day! At 6, the BBQ started, but Jason, Noah, Billy, and I were all out in the back, "testing out" Project X. After a few attempts, and an attempt to modify Proj. X, we decided that our brains needed some food to operate in a more functional manner. The BBQ was nice, there was quite a bit of food, drinks, and socializing. TimAnderson and others were flying kites up on the roof-patio (where the BBQ was held), in a mostly-successful manner. We watched the sun begin to fall, and as Squid Labs has the best view of San Francisco, it was spectacular. Unfortunately, my camera was inoperable... due to lack of battery power, and I didn't get any shots of the sundown. v_vAnywhoo, We all got Squid Lab 2007 Intern T-shirts, which were pretty damn awesome. There's a pic of them at the end of the post.After, Jason, Noah, Mike, Mitch, and both of their girlfriends (Erica and Jenna) came down off the roof-deck to help perfect Proj. X. We did quite a bit of work on it, but after several failed attempts, we knew what we had to do. Unfortunately, it was getting really late and we had to stop working on it for the night. Work will continue on Wednesday!Then, Billy and Star (Starsterisk) were going to watch The Boondock Saints on the projector in the conference room, so I joined them for a bit. We (Eric, Christy and I) got home around 10:30... pretty DARN late....Cheers,-Muffinator

Last Day at Instructables

It's my last day here at the Instructables office. It's been a wonderful summer, and I'm glad to have worked with everyone here: at the office, and the people I've interacted with on the site. Curious about my impact this summer, I did a bit of statistical analysis on the last three months, and I wanted to share it with you. It's not completely precise, but it gives a good ballpark. Ironically, though I have done laser cutting, 3D printing on both the UP printer and the Objet, CNC embroidery, and even CNC papercutting, I never bothered to install the office printer. So I had to show my graphs from a laptop screen. Here are my stats, as of August 17th: I published 69 Instructables total this summer in about 89 days, (65 official work days). (I have a lifetime total of 88 from some previous Instructables.) Here's a graph of the Instructables building up over time. (Blue is data; the thin black line is a fitted trend.) It's pretty linear (with a slight dip at the end of July, when I went camping and couldn't post). The averaged rate is about 75% of an Instructable every day this summer, or just over one per day if you only count work days. 63% of my summer’s Instructables were featured. I had a quick learning curve; after the end of May, 75% were featured. It was a little more difficult to extract further data, so the remainder of my statistics refer only to Instructables I published while working here this summer which received over 1,000 total pageviews. Overall, these Instructables generated 294,224 pageviews (almost three hundred thousand!), 89% of which were from unique viewers. People spent a total of 14 hours, 11 minutes, and 28 seconds viewing these Instructables. To the left, you can see my summer pageviews accumulate, and to the right, the day-by-day graph of my pageviews. The peaks on the right graph represent, in order, my Infinity Dress, the Clockwork Beetle, and the Plaster Face Cast. (Since I made these charts last Friday, it doesn't take into account my Temari, which whould have created a spike as big as that of the Infinity Dress over the weekend.) Although those are my top-viewed Instructables from the summer, my favorites are actually these ones: (and working on Psycho Scooter Scramble, of course) I'm glad to have such a measurable effect on the site and the Instructables community. The people of the site and in the office have made a strong impact on me as well. This is the first place where I feel a true sense of community among a group of people I know exclusively through the internet, and I want to thank all of you who I've never met in person for being my friends. In the office, I'll thank you personally. It's been a great summer, thanks to you. I'll still be around the site from time to time, but I can't devote every day to it. I'm finishing up my Neuroengineering degree at Olin and working on a few other things besides. But I'll be around, and I hope to talk to all of you from time to time. See you around, and happy making! -SelkeyMoonbeam

Ch. 3 In Which Old Science Creates New Technologies

Hey Instructastorians! I know I haven’t been keeping my Instructables Intern Blog updated, so in advance I apologize for the lateness in this update. Things have really picked up since the last time I posted anything here! As some of you might remember back, a couple of weeks ago Instructables HQ, which where herein be referred to as Instructables Laboratories (Seriously, that’s what they call the building here!), held a massive social event involving Liquid Nitrogen and fast freeze Ice Cream. It was a rising success for everyone and more than 70 people visited our lab! The Ice Cream was fantastic to, due to our delicious confectionary staff particularly Angie, and our Maker Faire ticket raffle was awesome. As for the Faire itself, I unfortunately was not able to participate in the Instructables Booth, being more than slightly preoccupied with my own DIY PIXAR stand, but I heard it was great. They managed to give away almost all of the Lab’s business cards and even managed to sell several dozens of our Robot T-Shirts! Sure beats the hell out of being stuck in a dark room, with several hundreds of people jamming into your personal space, while Tesla Coils scream Classical Music at 56 decibels… BUT, last week after the Faire, things became sadly much more subtle. Several people around The Lab were still recuperating from the hectic events of the Faire and there wasn’t much to do around the office. Being recently promoted to the job of Delivery (meaning I get to control all outward shipment of prizes and gifts), my goal was focused on trying to ship out a lot of the past closed contest prizes from a couple of months past. Thankfully Instructables had a monthly event to obliterate this post MF doldrums- INSTRUCTABLES BUILD DAY! This is held on the last Friday of every month, where most work is momentarily cast aside and everyone instead works on their own personal Building projects! SWEET! So for my project, I ended up creating something really cool involving PVC pipe connectors, a Shop Vac and several feet of clear vinyl tubing ('ible coming soon).  I'm making a note here- HUGE SUCCESS! As for myself, even though I might’ve gotten used to waking up at 6:00 AM to commute 1.5 hours to San Francisco, I’m still completely thrilled to be working here. Always something new going on and never a dull day at the office Lab. OH and I finally got my own key! Now I can enter our labs without setting off the Turret Defenses! -New Intern 2011, SHIFT!

Need Tips on Finding an Internship

So, as much as I've enjoyed being a full time student for the last year, the time comes when a man discovers he needs money, that time is when his wife says "Get a Job"! So I'm starting to look for an Mech Eng internship and the internship office at UCF is proving less fruitful than I had anticipated. Of 18 engineering internships listed (and that list has only grown by two in the last 45 days), only 5 are "local" and of that 5, I meet the qualifications of 3. Those 3 being USA/NASA 68 miles away Lockheed 43 miles away and Disney 47 miles away Not that I'm asking for the world to meet my convenience, but the idea of working an internship 12-20 hours a week while commuting 9-12 hours a week, plus carrying a full time class load, thrills me not. So the question becomes, quite simply. How Do I Find An Internship? Post my resume to Monster? Spam my resume to every engineering firm in a 30 mile radius? Help, any reasonable suggestions would be much appreciated. I added that pic because I need your bright ideas.

Fun Summer Camps!

Hi, I am looking for some fun summer camps/ job opportunities/internships . I live in Wisconsin but I am could travel to where the camp is. Also I used to Live in the Bay area so it would be nice to go to a camp or get an internship some where in that area. I am currently 14 (Will be 15 in July) so that will limit my possibilities. I enjoy electronics, hiking, building things, surfing and many other things of that nature. Any suggestions, thoughts or comments? Thanks In Advanced, Joe

Is it true that Google makes employees learn all languages?

I don't know if I heard this right but I believe I heard this in the movie the movie The Internship. Does Google make their employees learn all different languages because Google is in all different countries?

Introduce Yourself

Well, now we have a suitable place to do this... let everyone know who you are, school?, job?, future plans, etc... My Name is Paul - I'm a Mechanical Engineering student (third year) and I go to school at the University of Central Florida (UCF) in Orlando. I currently don't have a job (other than little things around campus) - but I'm looking for an internship or even better an externship. As for the future -- I really don't want to work for someone else after I graduate. I don't know how that's going to work out just yet - so I continue to network...

Community sections not displaying accurate info

I noticed that several community sections and topic lists are not displaying correct data. I don't want to sound like I'm nit-picking (because I really do like this site), so I hope staff takes this as an effort to improve things and not just as criticism. :) The following sections display incorrect data: (https://www.instructables.com/community) Community > Forums > Newsletter Archive (shows last post= 1 year ago, but last post was yesterday). Community > Help > Contests (shows 0) Community > Marketplace > Jobs & Internships (shows last post= 6 months ago, but last post was 4 days ago) The following sections do not display topics in the correct order based on most recent; Community > Marketplace > For Sale, Free Stuff, Jobs & Internships, Services and Wanted (only "Kits" is displaying correctly). Community > Help > Bugs and FAQ's Finally, if I may make a suggestion... I have noticed that when a new topic is posted, it does not show up as the "last post" as indicated on the root "community" page. Instead the "last post" is always based on comments. Too often, I think members are missing new topics because they are unaware that they exist if they are basing the activity of a section on the "last post". I think its worth considering that a change be made to reflect the "last post" by activity instead of by comment alone. Thank you for your efforts to make this community a great place to be. As I said, I hope my comments are taken as constructive and not just as criticism.

DIYers and makers, answer please!

I'm currently doing an internship in a portuguese company, whitesmith and I'm developing a tool that will hopefully help makers and DIYers and make your life way easier when you're starting to create something new and need a whole lot of materials. What I'd like you to tell me is what is the most boring step on the process of building something new. Would you consider searching for every single material in different websites/online stores and comparing prices the most boring step of that process? If so, would you like to have a tool that would do that price comparison for you? If not, what do you think is the most boring step? Thanks in advance :)

Computer Programmer Needed For Interview

I am doing a project in school where I have to interview a computer programmer. The idea is to for me to learn how a practitioner in the field of computer programming works. Expect to be asked questions about computer languages, and a description of your job among other things. I will be posting this message across the forums in the Science ,Tech, Wanted, Jobs & Internships, Authors, and Services sections. No payment will be given to the interviewee. To contact me please post the official tittle of your job and proof such as a picture of your workplace in the comments. If you have a degree related to computer programming please include what it is in your comment. I prefer to converse in a Skype interview or by email. Thank You!

FIRST Robotics Competition

Has anyone heard of the FIRST Robotics Competition? It was started by Dean Kamen. Instead of me repeating what their philosophy is, check out their website: FIRSTI'm on the first team from Nebraska, and this was our rookie year. We just finished up our regional competition in Kansas City, MO, and it was a blast. It is one of the only programs that I have found that encourages involvement in science and technology. The build process is almost similar to an engineering internship.If you happen to be in high school (or not yet there) or you are a professional engineer, electrician, programmer, or hobbyist (basically anyone who uses Instructables!), I strongly encourage you to get involved. Find a team in your area and contact them. There are over 2000 teams in the country, so there may be one near you.If you are already involved, let me know! I am interested in hearing what people have to say.
