This weekend: Maker Faire!

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.

Everyone and their GeekDad is excited about Maker Faire. There will be Legos, mechanical fairy wings, epic battles between robotic warships, and even Wall-e.

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.
