Spark 173 – February 19 & 22, 2012 “Maker Fun”

Pt 668
Spark 173 – February 19 & 22, 2012 @ Spark. “Maker Fun” –

At the root of any DIY movement is creativity. And there’s an entire branch of the movement that loves getting their hands on anything that needs to be fixed, altered or improved – they’re called “makers”. Nora chats with Limor Fried the founder of Adafruit Industries, a kind of HQ for the electronics maker movement. They make and supply plans and parts and provide them open source online. (Runs 8:23)

As for the good old fashioned radio, this is on air this Sunday (today) afternoon at 1:05 local time in most parts of Canada (4:05 on the west coast). Full broadcast and podcast details are on the website.
