A Trip to the Faire

Today was the first day of the first Maker Faire, put together by O’Reilly’s MAKE Magazine.
Here’s my photo gallery of my wanderings through the Faire.
It’s very late so I’ll just note my principle impressions:

  • Kids love this stuff. It was nice to see so many parents and their children engaged in what is basically science education.
  • The Faire had a lot to offer– it was bigger and more interesting than I’d expected
  • Sun had a booth, and the dedicated folks from Sun Labs were showing off an impressive series of Sun SPOT demos.

If you live in the Bay Area, I recommend that you take a look tomorrow (Sunday, Apr 23).
