Group Description

The original mission:

This is a discussion group for people interested in technical education. "How Things Work" is a project
to teach non-technical people (e.g., your mother) about
the man-made world--from reinforced concrete to digital
audio. Our group, open to anyone, discusses strategies
for teaching and construction of demonstrations. Some of the philosophy and details of this particular project can be found at http://www.mkinsler.com.

What it is now:
It's turned into what's best described as a mutual education society with a technological flavor. Most of the discussion seems to involve technologies of some sort--i.e., how something works or how things are done. There are about 75 enthusiastic members who are polite to each other and who teach the Group Owner a very great deal.
