We have five Maker Faires around the world this weekend, which shows you how widespread the maker movement is.
I’ll be going to Maker Faire Orlando. I haven’t been in a few years and I’m looking forward to seeing Florida’s makers. Ian Cole and his team at the Maker Effect Foundation do a great job. Please let me know if you’re going. I’d like to say hello.
Editor Caleb Kraft will be going to Maker Faire Shenzhen, which is produced by Eric Pan’s Seeed Studios with Monica Shen as the lead producer. This year’s Maker Faire Shenzhen will be smaller than previous years, according to Monica, but it will be hosted at X Factory.
