Limor Fried of Adafruit talks about New York City’s upcoming MakeFaire – New York Business Journal.

Limor Fried, the founder of New York City-based manufacturing plant and DIY platform Adafruit, has been going to Maker Faire’s since she was the company’s only employee.

We had a chance earlier this week to interview Fried, about the up-comingMakerFaire in Queens, where 100,000 people are expected to turn out, to see how the industry has changed since that first Faire back in 2006, and what her own company has up its sleeve.
