Our CEO, Eric Wilhelm, wrote a history of Instructables.com and Squid Labs, posing it as a “How to Start a Business” instructable. Snip:
Even if cash neutrality is all that Instructables ever achieves, and it never actually provides a meaningful return to its investors, I would still be proud of my company. Instructables by its very nature has, and will continue to have, a net positive impact on the world. It’s a valuable tool for anyone with a project or idea to share, and we’re building a fantastic community.

I tried it and agree with U-Boat’s assessment:
Someone I met with recently was absolutely raving about Blue Bottle’s Kyoto-style coffee, where cold water is slowly dripped over the grind. Apparently it’s a multi-day process to make a single pitcher. He said it tastes nothing like coffee, and was completely free of the usual rancidity and bitterness of coffee, and was more akin to a fine bourbon. I don’t like coffee, but was still intrigued.
So, there’s a glass of the stuff on my desk, which everyone is welcome to come and sniff or try (I’m perfectly healthy).
It is by far the closest thing to pure poison I have ever drank.
I guess there are some tastes that one does not really need to acquire.
