Thoughts on community

I was invited to post over at Medium from my perspective as a woman maker and entrepreneur. I wrote a bit on Flourishing in the Maker Community.

As a woman, I am often called to tell what it it is like to be a woman in my field, or to provide advice on how to get young women interested in technology. I’d much rather share the amazing things people are doing with our products. I’d much rather help someone learning about electronics to get over a hurdle to the point they are successful with a project. And I’d much rather spend my time working on projects that in their own way, help young women and men to flourish and learn.

How to Pick a Project

Carlyn Maw’s How to Pick a DIY Electronics Project is so much more than that! It is an excellent tool for planning for just about any project. It covers thinking about project scope, tools, skills, parts and more.

Many of the questions are phrased for electronics, but most of them are applicable no matter what project you’re thinking about. And even if you have already picked a project, you can use the questions as guidelines for ways forward and to illuminate possible stumbling blocks.

We often get asked about what project to pick, and I’m glad to have this thoughtful tool to share.
