I read Makezine and noticed that my Marshmallow cannon was featured in the forum a couple weeks ago.

Someone spotted the launcher on crazybuilders and submitted it.
In one day my video of how it works doubled in views. Wow they have a huge following. They had more views in one day than 3 months on spudfiles total. I looked to see where the spike in views came from and saw it posted on Make.

This Saturday they are having a get together in Beaverton Oregon at 3:00.

If you would like to see this cannon in person and meet me, I am planning on attending. I will most likely bring both cannons.

Will I get to meet anyone there? Too bad we most likely won't get to shoot it due to the urban location. I still may try to launch a few marshmallows at low pressure. I'll see what they say.

Oh yeah Makezine...I remember when I posted my first golf ball gun tutorial on Instructables, sites such as Makezine also featured it. It's amazing how it can travel across the web so fast. Last I checked, I think 60 websites had borrowed it from Instructables, though about 20 of those are different google engines from different countries.
