#1 Who is going to be the first one to do an electronic project? Your intro talks about electronics but It seems like I have seen any of you do an electronics project besides maybe zacs lamps. Maybe James doing a hand tool project and then add an arduino??

#2 Where do you guys draw the line between making and building? You build a house not make a house. You can build or make furniture. What size or scale do you think of to draw the line?

Joke of the week

Make Brookly: What did the saw say to the drill? ............... nothing, tools are inanimate objects they don't have language skills.
