What’s a mook?

Hey, I didn’t know either until about five minutes ago, when I read a review in the March issue of Wired magazine about Mark Frauenfelder’s “Make: Technology on Your Time.”

Wired used the word “mook” to describe “a quarterly publication that combines an easy-to-read magazine format with the heft of a book.”

Sounds good to me.

“… Frauenfelder… offer[s] up illustrated instructions for stuff like making a magnetic strip reader (to access the info that’s stored on your credit cards), rigging together a steadycam for just $14, and building a hybrid car.”

I like it.

“‘Make’ is like a Time-Life collectible series for geeks.”

Where do I sign up?

  • Perhaps the techno-geek will be a mook unless he buys this mook.

    Succinct review that communicates the point admirably – no wonder we agree that “brevity is the soul of wit.” Make sounds like my kinda bathroom reader!
