That’s right, boils and ghouls. San Francisco is hosting Maker Faire (sponsored by MAKE Magazine), a place where tinkerers and crafters converge to show of their wares.
Their theme this year is how to create a sustainable future, and promoting the idea is that we ourselves have the power!
Unfortunately I can’t get the official site to stay up on my computer, but maybe you’ll have better luck: http://www.makerfaire.com/
Just don’t go over the top with your enthusiasm.
