Maker Faire this weekend!

Just an FYI, the Maker Faire is this weekend, in San Mateo:

“…Maker Faire is a two-day, family-friendly event that celebrates the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) mindset. It’s for creative, resourceful people of all ages and backgrounds who like to tinker and love to make things…”

Last year, I saw a robotic giraffe, a flame throwing fire engine, the Neverwas Haul (a steam punk house on wheels), and the Cycle-cide bicycle powered carnival rides, among many other things. It’s great fun. You can see some of my pictures from last year here:

I’m planning to go Saturday afternoon, and maybe Sunday. If you’d like to go, let me know, and perhaps we can arrange to meet sometime over the weekend
