The Book Makes Faire

October 7th, 2012 · Comments Off on The Book Makes Faire

Maker Faire New York 2012.  I’m still trying to wrap my head around this event.  Grass-roots tinkerers, inventors, and hackers.  A whole tent of home-made 3D prototypers.  A day of talks about Arduinos.  A steam punk village.  The best I can do is offer this amalgam:  science fair, county fair, and craft fair.  Brilliant.  Nerd-fest.  Family fair.  Created by the do-it-yourself mavens at Make Magazine, this event occurs annually in San Francisco, Detroit, and New York.  They were kind enough to invite me to speak about Darwin’s Devices.  Even better, they videotaped the talk, along with all of the others given over the weekend, and made it available on YouTube.
