I have fantastic news for NOVA viewers – David Pogue returns this October for more “Making Stuff.”

You might remember Pogue from 2011’s “Making Stuff” in which he explored the wave of innovation that was making things Stronger, Smaller, Cleaner, and Smarter. The October 2013 reboot jumps back on the wave of innovation, this time exploring how to make things Faster, Colder, Safer and Wilder.

Watch the “Making Stuff” encore 8 p.m. Wednesday Aug. 21 and 28 and online.

Or, you might have no idea about this “Making Stuff” series but are still reading simply because you’re a David Pogue fan. You might know him as an author in the “for Dummies” series of how-to books. I was first captivated by Pogue’s New York Times column years ago. But nowadays, the man seems to be everywhere. You can see him on CBS Sunday Morning, as host of NOVA scienceNow, in the pages of Scientific American, or on Twitter where he shares pictures from his NOVA shoots with his nearly 1.5 million followers.

Pogue is also a TED Talks alum. His 10 Top Time-Saving Tech Tips is brief and entertaining, and, for me, incredibly valuable. Did you know you can simply hit the space bar to scroll to the bottom of a web page rather than laboriously scrolling with your mouse or trackpad?
