The Life of Kenneth: So You Want to Build Electronics
So here is a gigantic list of everything I would buy right now to replace my entire workshop if mine were to disappear.

Tinkering: all summer at the Exploratorium
"Tinkering is what happens when you try something you don't quite know how to do, guided by whim, imagination, and curiosity.<br />
<br />
When you tinker, there are no instructions — but there are also no failures, no right or wrong ways of doing things. It's about figuring out how things work and reworking them.<br />
<br />
Contraptions, machines, wildly mismatched objects working in harmony—this is the stuff of tinkering."
