Wirecutter Meets Cool Tools

This is probably the last Hangout I’ll be doing for the Cool Tools book. This Wednesday at 4pm PST.

The Wirecutter is like Cool Tools on steroids. Begun by Brian Lam, this site does deep reviews of popular item categories. Wirecutter writers will spend up to 30 hours researching the best blender, or point and shoot camera, or flat screen TV, and then try to reduce their recommendation to a single item. They don’t review the same wide range of stuff that Cool Tools do, and unlike Cool Tools, they show all their work and research. I am a huge fan of the Wirecutter and its companion Sweet Home, and have often discovered great items that later make it to Cool Tools. Brian Lam is also a fan of Cool Tools. I’d thought it would be great to conversation online about our common pursuits.

This Wednesday at 4pm PST, I’ll be joining Brian Lam, Mr. Wirecutter himself, in a Google Hangout on Air. We’ll take up to 8 folks into the Hangout as participants. Sign up here. At the time of the event, the first 8 to accept the invitation I send out on G+, will get in. Everyone else can watch the event live at this link.

Hope to see you there.
