Karen Nakamura: September 2010 Archives

Yesterday I went to  the Maker Faire in New York City, the first time it's been here.  It was held at the New York Hall of Science, which is actually the old expo fairgrounds in Brooklyn, made famous as the scene of the final battle in Men in Black.




The Faire was nothing what I expected. I thought it would be something more akin to the MIT Flea Market, which I attend regularly: a bunch of old and young, mostly male, geeks.  But instead, it was a very strange blend of families, kids doing cool projects, craft people, and just general strangeness.



At the Sparkfun booth, they were showing kids how to solder.  Sparkfun is one of my favorite companies so I'm really glad to see them help grow the community this way.
