Maker Faire, produced by Make Magazine and by far one of the best events of the year, has just announced their Call For Makers: Maker Faire Bay Area 2007. This year there will be two Maker Faires, one in San Mateo on May 19-20 and a second one in Austin on October 20-21. Here my photos from Maker Faire 2006.
Organized by the staff of Make and Craft magazines, Maker Faire is a newfangled fair that brings together science, art, craft and engineering in a fun, energized, and exciting public forum. The aim is to inspire people of all ages to roll up their sleeves and become makers. This family-friendly event showcases the amazing work of all kinds of makers–anyone who is embracing DIY and wants to share their accomplishments with an appreciative audience. Last year, we had 20,000 people at Maker Faire.
