In the lead-up to tomorrow’s Dale Dougherty/MAKE segment on “The Next List” (Sunday, 2pm EST), CNN has posted an article by Dale entitled How to Make More ‘Makers’ – and Why It Matters.
The article also includes another video excerpt from “The Next List” piece.
Please Note: After the show tomorrow, Dale Dougherty (@dalepd) will be hosting a Q&A on twitter (#make). We hope you’ll join us.
Our friend Raphael Abrams from NYC Resistor needs to track the hours he works as a freelancer but none of the solutions out there work very well for him. He therefore decided to make his own hardware-based detonator-style time tracker which he calls “Puncher.” The source code and schematics are available to download if you’d like to start tracking your own hours with it.

The use of traditional motion picture film cameras is likely on the way out as high quality digital video cameras become better and more affordable. A group of developers is capitalizing on this with Apertus, an open source software and open hardware cinematic HD camera for a professional production. While they’re far off from a camera that’s ready to shoot out of the box, the development is well under way. Hit play on the video above for more information about the project and check out these sample videos from the camera. And if you’re a developer that loves the tools of cinematography (like yours truly), take a look at how you can help the project.
