Maker Faire

Originally uploaded by aliciamalia.

I survived the Maker Faire. As you can tell from this picture, it has a carnival-ish air about it. Lots of burning man art, some bands, and building after building of robots, electronics, and models. The craft component was surprisingly minimal. I imagine it was an absolute dream come true for a 13-year-old boy. From what I gather, the event was significantly larger than last year, and I hope it continues to grow. There's certainly something for everyone, but it doesn't yet feel like a cohesive whole. Certainly interesting, though.
