It's Maker Faire! Brought to you by Make Magazine! It's DIY!
Started in San Mateo, California in 2006, and also being held in Detroit and New York, Maker Faire is the premier event for grassroots American innovation. As the World's Largest DIY Festival, this two-day family friendly Faire has something for everyone - a showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness and a celebration of the Maker mindset.
It's the kind of thing that makes me wish I had a talent for building things, especially things that shoot fire. Oh yeah, go to their site, there's things on fire. You've got a Maker Faire coming up in the Bay Area May 21st and 22nd, one in Detroit on July 30th and 31st, and one in New York at the site of the 1939 and 1961 World's Fairs on September 17th and 18th. Enjoy and maybe make something that I can read about on the Internet.
