    Apparently the people at 'Make' magazine have a convention known as Makers Faire...



    Has anyone here gone to or participated in this? It looks like fantastic fun!

    edit: There are other, perhaps better videos than this one...

    The Maker Faire is awesome, but I haven't been myself.

    I'm going to try and make the one in Austin later this year, but the dates are bad for me, so I might not.

    I went to the San Mateo Maker Faire last year and the year before that.

    It's a bit overwhelming. And humbling. So many goddamn creative people.

    But if you're around the Bay Area or Austin when the show is on, go.

    Oh, here's my flickr from last year's show:

    I haven't been either, but it looks like a lot of fun. For those in Southern California, there's a "Maker Night" coming up in Los Angeles on Tuesday, June 10th. LA SIGGRAPH is hosting it. It looks like an intro to the whole "maker" thing.
