It turns out that I’m the last person in the New York area to find out about Maker Fair, a grown-up science fair, a tech show, and a craft fair all at once. And a indie music concert. And a display of futuristic sustainability.
I met up with Tryon and Katie, Andrea and Nate, Jon and Kimberly, and Roy (who all knew about it already), and it was pretty great. I went to a couple presentations of new tech toys (Co-op online Connect Four with PlayNiceWithOthers and cyberpunk Sifteo gameblocks stand out), held in tents in the parking lot, and we checked out gorgeous crafts.
