So Maker Faire is awesome. It is nice to see thousands explore their creativity and ask questions. This isn't just a bunch of sports fans clapping, this is glue-gun, soldering iron, sweat-on-the-upper-lip hardcore tinkering. Some of the highlights include:
1. The steam punk Victorian mansion (as seen at Burning Man 2006)
2. The Swap-a-Rama where I made an owl doll that I've decided is Korean.
3. The Tech Shop with lathes, powder paints and a tool area that my dad would drool over
4. The Tesla Coils
5. The funky bikes and bike-related rides
Laughing Squid's Scott Beale does a much better job of doing it justice in photos.
