  1. I really enjoy Make, but three days in a row of seeing Obama on the front page makes it hard to believe you are not openly supporting him.

  2. @RipL – we can’t control what people put in their photos, i didn’t even see the obama bag until you pointed it out. one time someone got mad at us because of a t-shirt in a photo someone was wearing had some hipster political symbol or something, kinda silly is you ask me.

    i posted the spokePOV wheels, it had nothing to do with endorsing any campaign as i said in my post. i wish all political parties did open source hardware projects and electronics :)

    to make it super-crystal clear.

    MAKE DOES NOT SUPPORT OR ENDORSE ANY POLITICAL PARTY OR CANDIDATE.

    that said, if mccain, nader, obama, etc wants to advertise on MAKE we’d love to have either or all of them! makers are an important demographic, they should all come here to see what we’re up to.

    lastly, if you’re going to give make the “bye-bye” because of a couple posts that happen to have something you do not 100% like i don’t think there a single site that could live up to those expectations.

    if you really enjoy MAKE then you know we don’t beat-around-the-bush if we wanted to support someone for president or a political party we’d come out and just do it – heck, i’d have contests and kits or something… LED elephants / donkeys, they’d be open source hardware projects and the profits would go to the campaigns or something, you get the point :) but that’s not what we’re doing.

    MAKE is inclusive not exclusive, everyone is a maker.

    if you have any questions or comments please email me.
