Humans of MIT: Xavier Hubbard, 2014
Favorite power tool? That sander. [laughs] Like, the belt sander, they're just so useful for doing so many different things. The main material we use is called MDF, and it could resemble wood, but basically sanding just kind of destroys it. So if you're careful with it you can just sand away like all these nice shapes and stuff. And also the metal file, but you have to do it by hand a lot, because you can't get things to rub off. Those would definitely have to be my favorite, and if not that, then the drill press, because that does a lot of other cool things, so...
Oh man, I feel like such a mech-e!

In 2014, four MIT students created Humans of MIT, a Facebook portrait-blog inspired by Brandon Stanton's Humans of New York, that captures life in the MIT community through a single photo and the subject’s own words.
