MAKE, CRAFT, O’Reilly spotted on The IT Crowd set

If you’ve ever seen the Emmy-award-winning British geek sitcom The IT Crowd, you’ve probably spent half of your time scanning the background to pick out all of the great nerd collectibles and high-techery crammed into every scene. On the Channel4 website for the show, they have a zoomable, pannable tour of the IT basement and Jen’s office. A bunch of back issues of MAKE, CRAFT, one of the Make: Projects books, and not surprisingly, a bunch of O’Reilly tomes are found there. What? No Maker’s Notebook? IT Crowd set designer, email me, STAT! [Thanks, Chris!]
