I just spent way more time than I have absolutely riveted to this site: Instructables. As the name implies, it instructs readers, but not on how to know stuff, but on how to make stuff. In the virtual age we have adapted to, actually doing something sticks out like a flashing neon sign.

This is a genuinely user-driven site aimed at educating and empowering the innovator within on a limited budget.
