btr90 Make: Talk episode #005 (the Failure episode)
makeTalkLogo200.jpg

Well, today’s Make: Talk was fun… while it lasted. I forgot to set the time interval for the show and it’s defaulted to cut the stream at 15 minutes. Turns out, it continues to record, so we could have gone the full 45 for the archived version, but being new to this software/service, we didn’t know that. The first 15 are worth listening to, though. We talk about happenings at MAKE, Make: Online, MakerFaire, and making in general. And you get to hear the beginnings of our Tom Igoe interview.

So sorry for the inconvenience. We’re getting better as we go along and will work the bugs out. We’ll have Tom on again next Friday, same time (12 noon PDT, 3pm EDT), so DO come back,

Funny enough, one of the main topics Dale, Goli, and I were discussing was failure, learning from failure, trying not to be embarrassed by your mistakes — falling forward. So, I’ll try and meditate on that for the rest of the day rather than feel like a complete bonehead.

Here are the Show Notes for what we discussed:

MAKE Classifieds (Closing today! Register for the Shed Gift Certificate drawing)
Fix the World! (The repair area for Maker Faire 2009 — they need volunteers)
Maker Faire, May 30-31 (Plan to come. Bring the whole family and be prepared to be inspired)
Ask MAKE (New column from Becky Stern. Send Becky your questions.)
Show us your shop (We want to see your workspace photos!)
