You can check out last night’s segment on the Colbert Report with Mark Frauenfelder, Editor in Chief of MAKE via Comedy Central. – Link.

From Phil @ MAKE:

Hello heros (fans of the Colbert report) – Today Mark Frauenfelder our editor-in-chief @ MAKE was on the show. Here’s a bit about us… MAKE brings the do-it-yourself mindset to all the technology in your life. MAKE is loaded with exciting projects that help you make the most of your technology at home and away from home. This is a magazine that celebrates your right to tweak, hack, and bend any technology to your own will.

Published as a quarterly since February 2005, MAKE is a hybrid magazine/book (known as a mook in Japan). MAKE comes from O’Reilly, the Publisher of Record for geeks and tech enthusiasts everywhere. It follows in line with the Hacks books and Hardware Hacking Projects for Geeks, but it takes a highly visual and personal approach.

Our premiere issue showed you how to get involved in kite aerial photography — taking pictures with a camera suspended from a kite — and how to build an inexpensive rig to hold your camera.

We’ve also shown you how to make a video camera stabilizer, a do-it-yourself alternative to an expensive Steadicam and how to create a five-in-one cable adapter for connecting to networks. Some projects are strictly for fun, others are very practical, and still others are absolutely astounding.

    After watching the sad plight of the robot lemming, it was hilarious watching Mark & Stephen blowing marshmellows at each other with homemade pvc blowers. Additionally, it was good to watch Colbert actually enjoy the interview without being typically overbearing.
