Our friends over at Make are working hard today to get Maker Faire set up and running, and it looks like it’s going to be an incredible event. If you’re in the Bay Area and you miss this, you’re going to kick yourself.
This year’s Faire is at the San Mateo Fairgrounds, and gates open this Saturday at 10 a.m. You’ll find us in the pavillion conducting a drill/driver test — which you can help with! — so be sure to stop by and say hello. And, if you have time, we’ll be at The Page in San Francisco Friday night at 8 p.m. for a meetup to shoot the bull about tools, drink some cheap beer, and distribute a few free Maker Faire tickets.
The picture above, by the way, is of Make’s own fire truck which is already parked at the Faire. After seeing it, Sean and I have concluded that we must own a fire truck at some point. We’re already on the WiFi looking for one. If you have any leads, drop us a line via the contact page. (It doesn’t even have to run. In fact, our favorite deal would be the “haul it off special.”)
