I actually really like instructables. I was out in SF last May and
got to meet their team, who all seemed like awesome hackers who
legitimately care about doing cool things and supporting people doing
And then talking with some of them later, the "contests" and things
that they do seem more like excuses to give hardware away to
hackerspaces, which I think is also really cool.
I say we do this...but keep in mind that there are some REALLY GOOD
makers that make REALLY GOOD things for some of these contests, so
getting selected for sponsorship could be tough.
Although, honestly, even if we didn't, instructables is a good
community. I know at least a couple of projects I've done have been
at the encouragement of some of the other posters there. I think it
would be good to expose some of the lab to that.
I basically have nothing negative to say about them at all. LETS DO IT!
I can pledge to get my countertop project finished and write an
instructable for it. (Based on this: http://imgur.com/a/4qcbb)
