Snip, Burn, Solder, Shred

 I have been crazy busy getting ready for Maker Faire and dealing with house issues, but I wanted to make a quick post to tell you about a new book that is coming out that I am super excited about!  I met the author, David Erik Nelson, while working on the DIY track for Penguicon.  We ended up speaking on a panel together about publishing and crafts, which somehow meandered into a lot of talk about bacon instead, which made me know he was a really cool guy!  He has this new book coming out that exemplifies the DIY and Maker ethic.  It is called Snip, Burn, Solder, Shred and is available for pre-order from No Starch Press.
David has generously offered a free sample project, this amazingly geeky-cute Sock Cthulhu, to show a little glimpse of what to expect from Snip, Burn, Solder, Shred.  
If you are going to Maker Faire Detroit, Dave will be there to talk about his book:
