Tim O'Reilly has decide to wager a few nickels on this offering. Rather anomalous, though. A magazine masquerading as a book. But leaving that aside, it is a paean to the inventive streak in many. There are actual existing magazines on inventions and technology. What makes Make different from those is its deliberate evocation of an Internet ambience. Not unlike Wired magazine, actually. Many of the inventions or gadgets described in Make are hardware concoctions, each built by one person on a budget. A far cry from a fully funded corporate research lab. There is a conscious harking to the iconic solitary inventor. Make is for a crowd that grew up on techno music and who lives lifestyles enabled by a continual Web interaction. An audience that has never known adult life without the Web. Perhaps Make will encourage you to help bring the future closer. At the very least, the serendipity of perusing its articles might spark new ideas.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
