Mila & fire vintage

by diydonaldreed

Mila and fire vintage store was started by two of my friends from back at home (Washington D.C.). Morgan Powell and Kelcie Glass are the owners of the online vintage boutique and are excellent examples of the DIY movement. They hand pick all the clothes they sell on their website, take the photos, blog and use twitter for advertising. They have become vintage staples in the Washington area, hosting parties, and throwing store parties were people could get a decent deal on their already amazingly priced clothes. They also travel to markets to sell their pieces. But of course what makes them DIY is that they do it all themselves. I wanted to write about them 1: I like supporting my friends and 2: they are really doing some great things with the use of the Internet and media.  Similar to my last post, it’s an excellent example of how success is made on the Internet.

Makerbot – Explained!!!

by Nick Brewer

Ok, yes, I know, I know, I harp on how awesome the Makerbot is weekly. But for those who don’t quite understand what the big deal is, I have for you a video produced by Time magazine. They interview Bre Pettis, who does an amazing job at explaining exactly why this fits within the DIY ethos. If you watch this, I promise I’ll cool it on the ra-ra makerbot for a bit.,32068,1211395318001_2096598,00.html
