Mark Frauenfelder

My friend, Mark Frauenfelder (editor of and the zine bOING bOING) was the inspiration for me to do the Bonnie Blog.

He's a tech culture journalist who not only started one of the best magazine and now online zines (, but also the coolest DIY magazine and site on the Web -- MAKE magazine. If the coolest kids on the planet took over Popular Mechanics magazine, this is what it would look like!

Mark has done everything from star in an Apple "Switch" commercial, to writing/illustrating some mighty fine books like The Mad Professor, The World's Worst: A Guide To The Most Disgusting Hideous; Inept, And Dangerous People, Places, And Things On Earth, The Happy Mutant Handbook, The Computer, and Rule the Web: How to Do Anything and Everything on the Internet---Better, Faster, Easier.

He's also been the only guest on "The Colbert Report" that made the host Stephen Colbert giggle as he played with DIY droids. Check it out the video of Mark in action here.

Be sure to check out his blog Mad Professor for his reviews of the latest fun books, comics, movies, music, software, tools and toys!
