Small Stuff is a site dedicated to producing printable versions of miniature items so people can decorate and construct tiny things and tiny doll’s house scale miniatures. There are lots of resources on the site and it’s a place to find those sorts of tiny things but it is also a site to which you could contribute if you are interested.
So what did you think? Shake the Future has put up 3 little DIY projects which involve recycling and has then asked for comments. If you read the comments there are some which are of no help. Other people have looked at the video and moved the ideas forward and offered some good suggestions. When you comment in a positive way, if someone asks for your opinion or help, then you allow yourself and others to grow ideas. I actually liked the fridge magnet project probably because it is cold and wet outside today and having the oven on would be a nice thing. I , too , thought he was going to turn the Rubrik’s cube into a clock. You can hear the disappointment that he didn’t . So who is going to make the Rubrik’s cube clock? The video has created impetus with that idea. Doing and sharing work. Doing and soliciting feedback work. It’s how some people use social media so their ideas create more ideas. They stimulate reactions and thoughts in others and gain valuable feedback to keep their own thoughts and projects moving along.
