Going to the Austin Maker Faire, October 20-21

At last a real family event for Anna and me: we are heading to Travis County Fairgrounds, Austin, Texas on October 19th to visit the MakerFaire. This will be the 3rd American MakerFaire, and the first outside the Bay Area. I am prepared to meet enthusiastic makers and mind-blowing DIY projects there, as well as to say hello to Phil Torrone, Dale Dougherty or Mike Hendrickson, the latter 2 I met at the Euro Maker Faire in Brussels (and Mike as an old Foo was at the SciFoo Camp too, offering me to laser etch my then-new and then-beloved iPhone).

  1. Hey,

    I have a great link for an interview of Dale Dougherty at the SXSW Interactive Festival, filmed in the famous Austin City Limits Studio. Dougherty is the editor of CRAFT and MAKE magazines and founder of Maker Faire. The interview focuses on Dougherty’s views on how building do it yourself (DIY) communities can be similar to building online communities (Blogging). Here is a link to the video from the website of the show Docubloggers on the PBS station KLRU in Austin, Texas. Enjoy!!
