Digi-Key, Mouser and EPILOG – cool maker companies in April’s WIRED

Cool Maker Companies

We’re reading through the entire April WIRED and there are 3 companies that advertised in this “DIY / HOW-TO” issue that many of you are familiar with from the maker world. Digi-Key, Mouser and EPILOG. We use all 3 of these companies and we think it’s cool they spent their advertising dollars for the DIY issue filled with so many cool maker companies. Digi-Key has an excellent interview with Bre Pettis from Makerbot as well which is part of their ad, they’re celebrating 3D printing, open source hardware and one of our favorite hackers – Bre! Mouser also kicked off their new mobile version, you can try it here m.mouser.com

  1. Congrats on the cover Ladyada! That is so cool. Usually advertisers know ahead of time what is in the magazine. I will be sure to order more from Digikey and Mouser now. One day a laser from Epilog!
