Eric Wilhelm on MPR's Midmorning, Friday June 25th at 9 AM CT Answered

I will be talking with Make's Editor-in-Chief, Mark Frauenfelder, about the rise of DIY culture on Minnesota Public Radio's Midmorning call-in talk-show tomorrow, June 25th at 9 AM CT.  You can call in at 1-800-224-2828, or submit online questions at MPR News.

DIY for lifestyle and livelihood
The term "do-it-yourself" used be the purview of home repair gurus or a subculture of crafty trendsetters. But the Internet and the recession have inspired more DIY-ers to make things for entertainment and profit.

* Mark Frauenfelder: Editor of Make magazine, his new book is called "Made by Hand: Searching for Meaning in a Throwaway World." He is also the editor-in-chief of the popular blog BoingBoing.net.
* Eric Wilhelm: CEO of Instructables.com


That was a nice interview, but the phone made you sound funny _ I kept getting little tiny flavours of Butthead and wanted you to go "uh huh huh huh huh huh huh"


Interesting ....thanks for sharing. Pity this wasn't distributed to the NPR network....or was it and I missed it ?

Good deal! MPR are good people. :-)

Yay! Looking forward to hearing it.
