MAKE Newsletter for August 5, 2008
Summertime projects, pictures, and reading from the coolest makers on Earth: you!
"In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer." Albert Camus
Summer is still going strong, and we've seen more projects than ever before on the MAKE blog. My favorite project of the week is a tiny BBQ made by Alex; it's made from an Altoids tin! See something cool online that a maker made? Send it to us!
What are you making? Post up your photos in the MAKE Flickr photo pool: we pick the good, the bad, and the ugly each week and serve them up. Where else will you see remote-controlled ducks and vacuum tube earrings?
Lastly, MAKE Volume 14 is on newsstands. With the MAKE Digital Edition we can keep track of the most popular articles -- check them out and see if these are the same articles you're reading.
