The comic “Over the Hedge” featured Make in its January 21st strip. Thanks to Poncho Alarcon of Monterrey, Mexico who spotted the turtle named Verne reading Make.
I’m working on a piece for the next issue of Make called “Slow Made,” which points out similar ideas in the Slow Food movement and the Maker movement. The idea is to explore ways to become a co-producer, not a consumer. Verne is said by his creators, Michael Fry and T Lewis, to be “a true renaissance-turtle.” Perhaps he’s a perfect symbol for slow made.
