Maker Faire is coming up!

I’ll be at Maker Faire this weekend and on Saturday afternoon will be at the Hardware Hacking Area, teaching people how to solder. The rest of the time I’ll be wandering around or camped out at the Noisebridge table, poking at the 3-D makerbot printers and learning more about them.

Milo soldering

We went to Noisebridge last weekend and practiced soldering with Mitch Altman, who said last year he and volunteers taught around 3000 people to use a soldering iron. There are kits to make a little MakerFaire badge with a blinky light. Moomin learned how to make them and then practiced teaching me how. I’m always impressed with how clear his explanations are!


Anyway, if you’re at the fair, come and say hi!

    It is so great that such events still take place sometimes! I mean, most people show initiative only if the event is profitable these days. But I'm glad that there are people who still care more about cultural development and education. Will definitely try to participate in this faire next rear)

  2. There are many wealthy and rich people who have the virtue to help others in getting quality education. They invest their money in those areas of the world where the children and adults are not able to get education because of not having enough money.
