Inspired by a post on Makezine last year about a crew of EL-wire brandishing surfers, the folks at Switchback Entertainment made a short video for Salomon Freeski TV featuring EL-wire embellished skiers (and some seriously drool-worthy powder shots). The video was filmed using only small headlamps, moonlight, and EL wire as light sources. Compounded by the 2-foot October storm that just hit Tahoe, this video is doing wonders for my concentration today.

I’m a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.

I was an editor for the first 40 volumes of MAKE. The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. Covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made.
