There is a Maker Faire in Vancouver this weekend. It is hailed as:
The ultimate DIY festival – It’s county fair meets science fair meets farmers market meets burning man for families!
My son and I are just about to go. I will let you know what we have seen.
The video that follows is from the MAKER FAIRE Vancouver website and it Dale Dougherty talking about us all having the ability to be makers, creators. It cracks me up what folks with imagination can get up and do, the is a fellow who makes scooter powered by a drill. He wanted to see if it could be done. There is a wonderful sense of accomplishment when you start out with an idea and end up with something having a physical presence
