Make on NPR

NPR’s Weekend Edition Sunday had a nice report on our growing DIY culture, featuring brief interviews with Instructables’ Eric Wilhelm, Etsy’s Rob Kalin, and our own Phil Torrone –

“If you just Google anything in your home, there’s probably a hack or a mod for it,” Torrone says. “And there’s probably someone who’s completely obsessed with it, there’s probably someone who has completely taken something apart, completely tweaked it out, made it better.”

Once a month, there’s a meet-up at Make’s New York office. The January get-together drew 42-year-old Dave Giancaspro, who showed off a charging station for iPods and video-game gear. He’d made it out of plastic packaging from his kids’ toys.

The slogan on his T-shirt: “I void warranties.”

  1. I heard this story on my way to church Sunday and it was GREAT! Phil especially did a great job representing the MAKE: community. Amazingly enough, the story in general worked hard to not label ‘hackers’ as bad and pointed out that there is a culture out there who only want to play.

    Nice work!
