Finding authors who like to share and co-operate with their instructables

This is Kalimov. I am now working in an education company called Shanghai Genius Education Technology Co. Ltd. that mainly deals with schools in China. I am also a maker, too. For several years, I've read about instructables on and many of them were quite amazing, both in techniques or ideas. I think why not introduce them to kids in schools of China? I've asked the staff commitee about my idea and now I'm sharing this idea to you. Below is my thinking. My company wants to introduce some overseas instructables to schools in Shanghai or other cities in China. We also want to publish books of tutorial compilation. We are willing to translate English to Chinese. We like to share the backstories of a making and autobiography of you. What we need is your permission that you like to share or write out how much benefit you want (PM).  Summary: In the book and the app we are going to publish, there are introduction of, your profile and tutorials, your backstories. We share the benefit from education market. All sales reports are going to be visible to everyone. Besides, I also collect some of my crafting these years and I have made a post here. Thanks to Mike Asarus, Liquid Wash Hand and many members in that they keep inspiring DIYers all the time!

Electronic part site? Answered

I have been to many sites, just trying to find one that carries, well, everything! I'll go to one, and it'll have a whole bunch of led's, but no resistors, or a whole bunch of switches but no led's. I end up spending a fortune on shipping by ordering parts for a project from 5 different sites. I would like to find a site that has all these things in one place. leds switches resistors capacitors transistors most other basic electronic stuff. Share your site!

Would a slideshow instructable be a bad place to display my photography?

I have taken some pretty darn good pictures over the years, and I would like to share them with the Instructables community. I was thinking about posting a slide-show instructable, but since it isn't technically a project, i thought it would be the wrong way. Should I just post a forum topic?

Online Pirates Sunk - crew still paddling

The four men behind the (in)famous file-sharing website Pirate Bay have been jailed for a year, and ordered to pay $4,500,000 damages to a selection of big media publishing companies.One of the four, Peter Sunde, refused to pay what he called a "bizarre" fine; ""We can't pay and we wouldn't pay. Even if I had the money I would rather burn everything I owned, and I wouldn't even give them the ashes."Despite the ruling, The Pirate Bay website is still up and running - it seems that, whilst the activities of the website have been declared illegal, the website itself is not, presumably because none of the shared files are hosted by TPB themselves.Speaking to the BBC, the chairman of industry body the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) John Kennedy said the verdict sent out a clear message."These guys weren't making a principled stand, they were out to line their own pockets. There was nothing meritorious about their behaviour, it was reprehensible."The Pirate Bay did immense harm and the damages awarded doesn't even get close to compensation, but we never claimed it did."There has been a perception that piracy is OK and that the music industry should just have to accept it. This verdict will change that," he said.BBC StoryBBC Business analysis of TPB's operationsIFPI press releasePirate Bay's press conference

iSticky loves Arduino

Hi, We were working on some nice Arduino projects and were struck by the fact that we couldn't find a nice possibility to let our projects send short messages to our Macs or iPhones. Since we had an iSticky Server for these kind of messages, we built an extension for notes up to 150 characters. Because we are very happy with this possibility, we thought the world might be as well... So today we are going beta with this service. Please try it out, give us comments or tips for improvement and let those messages be pushed to your devices!

You know when you are signed up on a site and getting friends to visit it gets you points to download stuff?

I'm registered on, an official site promoting the upcoming fighting game for PS3 and 360, Tekken 6. Every week the site pits two characters against each other and in order to vote for one, you need to share a video trailer link with your friends. Whether it be through IM or myspace, anything will work as long as they click it. Every different friend who clicks your link counts as a point towards your account. Get enough "shares" and you'll be able to download exclusive wallpaper, character PDFs, etc. So i was wondering how these sites work, if there are ways to boost or speed up the process of getting "clicks". Any help would be great.

How to have shared interntet from windows 7 to xp?

I get internet from a UM175VW card that connects to my usb port.  It only provides internet for the computer it is connected too.  I was wondering if I can use an ethernet cable to share the internet on another computer.  I have one desktop pc that runs on windows 7.  My other computer is a 2004 compaq presario 2100 that runs on windows xp.  I got my ethernet cable from best buy to connect my xbox 360 to my computer to get onto xbox live.  I think it will work as it is basically the same thing.  If this is possible, please provide detailed instructions on how to do it.  I would like to keep the internet card on my desktop pc and share it with my laptop.

What do you love about Instructables?

I am a huge fan of Instructables and am curious why other people enjoy it so much. I believe it is important to tell others, how their hard work has been appreciated. Most of the time we tell people what we don't like about something. I have been a member of other sites like utube and blogs but I have stuck with Instructables because it has offered me an outlet to share what I make and connect with others. I like the fact that if we publish a good Instructable we get featured and that is a great way to get exposure. Their contest can be challenging as well as fun. I believe they try very hard to listen to their readers and authors. It is not just the Instructables team that make this such a great place but our readers are important as well. I have found most of the people here are kind and respectful. Please share your positive comments with me about why you love Instructables. Thanks for sharing your thoughts! Sunshiine

New Instructables Contest Page Format, Unfair?

I saw, (And hope you have to), the new format for the contest pages. When I say contest pages I mean the Tooltips contest, Share the Love Contest, Anti-yo contest, and any other to come. I dislike the new format for the pages because I feel it gives a few of the instructables members an unfair advantage over everyone else. On the old pages, everyones instructables were listed on one page, but on the new ones, the most popular are the only ones shown on the front page of the contest. And it's so hard to find the "View All" button, that not many people will likely search through the rest of the insturctables. I just think that having a couple of the lead I'bles on the front page will keep them on top and not give everyone a fair advantage by having them on the same page regardless of popularity. I hope someone else feels this way. Thanks Gunk On Floor

Article Fails To Credit Instructables

To: Ginny Mies, PC World Staff Editor, and Nick Mediati, PC World Assistant EditorCC: Kimberly Brinson, PC World Managing Editor, Ed Albro, PC World Editor, and Eric Wilhelm, Instructables CEOWho is this guy?I can't find his name on your staff list, so I hope you are the right people to talk to about this.I was reading the article in the above link and realized that I had just read most of that stuff (almost in that order) already on a web site called Instructables. While I don't care so much about the actual copyrights (Instructables is largely based on "Attribution non-commercial share-alike" legality), I do believe that at least a formal nod is in order. It might look (to those unfamiliar with Instructables) like he did some fancy research to gather those neat tips together, but to me it is practically undeniable that he was surfing Instructables. (I am not exaggerating, I read at least half of those tips on Instructables within the same hour!)Perhaps the best tip Zack Stern could have given was the only obvious one he left out: Visit Instructables for more of these user-enabling tips!Sincerely,Ricky RatzlaffAvid Instructables readerP.S. If you need links to the relevant projects on Instructables, feel free to ask. They're just a search engine away!
