I had the good fortune to visit the East Bay Mini Maker Faire in Oakland CA yesterday, a one-day event impossibly packed fractal-like into every nook and cranny of Park Day School and the Studio One Art Center.
This was the mini-faire’s third year, but my first time visiting. I’d heard this tends to be more earthy and homespun than the giant official Maker Faire shows, and was hesitant that a techie like myself (with no kids in tow) might lose interest after an hour or two. No dice. So much to see, so many engaging makers to talk with…I was among the first in the gate and among the last being shooed out well past the official closing time!
