It’s just been announced that Mike Rowe is going to be at MakerFaire Bay Area on Sunday! From the press release:
TechShop, the first membership-based DIY workshop and fabrication studio for makers, is excited to welcome Mike Rowe to Maker Faire, the world’s preeminent DIY festival. Rowe, whose own website, mikeroweWORKS.com, was created as a “PR Campaign for Hard Work,” will drop by the Fiesta Hall at the San Mateo County Event Center on Sunday, May 22nd, at 11 a.m. for an impromptu chat with makers and fabricators from around the country. “The only thing I make these days is a mess,” joked the creator and Host of Discovery Channel’s Dirty Jobs. “But the TechShop idea is phenomenal, and Maker Faire sounds like TechShop on steroids. It’ll be fun to hang out with some people who can still make things out of thin air. I’m a big fan.”
+1 Mike Rowe and +1 TechShop for making it happen.
