Hi Chugaluggers, 

I spotted this video on YouTube and sent it over to MAKE magazine last week.

CNN picked this up a day ago.

It's great seeing maker culture getting such exposure.

Ralph Waldo Emerson 


With maker culture so closely connected to open source -- this is good for open source, too.

It looks like the original YouTube video is going to smash through a million video views in 
the next few days. I'm glad the inventor of this bicycle elevator turned on monetizing (advertising) 
on this video clip. 


If you created a widely sensational YouTube video, do you know the steps for turning 
on monetizing? It's not difficult at all. A couple of check marks in your YouTube account.
