Maker Update #01

I’ve been having fun documenting, reviewing and recording project builds, but I can’t escape the fact that they take a few weeks to turn around. To fill the time in between, I thought it might be fun to host a weekly show rounding up some of the more interesting maker news and projects from the week.

So, here’s installment #1. I knocked the whole thing out in 24 hours — from script to export. I’ve bounced it off my friends and already I’ve received some useful feedback for the next episode.

If you have some suggestions for me, leave me a comment on the show page on YouTube.
