This Weekend – Maker Faire: NYC

by Nick Brewer

As we’ve mentioned a few times in class already, this weekend is Maker Faire. Not only does it play really well into the overall theme of the class, but it is a REALLY REALLY FUN EVENT! It is just a ton of people sharing projects and ideas. You can learn to solder for a dollar (personally I think it is a skill everybody should know), its very easy, and when you’re done you get a neat little blinking badge.

For anybody interested in meeting up as a group and checking out the grounds, I plan on attending Saturday. I’ll be there around 10:30am. Email me at brewn477(at) if you would like to meet up. I’ll try to coordinate everything if there are a bunch of people who would like to join me.
