Speaking of which: progress continues on the book project I've begun (now
titled The Maker Community Experience).  There are two confirmed authors
(myself and one other) and a possible third, as well as about a dozen people
who wish to collaborate.  Beyond that, we may ask more of you to provide

"Maker Manifesto".  Think of this as a "bible" of sorts, a collection of
stories and "rules".  So far I have found nothing competitive.
