We’re going to be at Maker Faire on Saturday!
Maker Faire has grown up to be a celebration of a culture of prototyping, trying things out, and having fun with technology. Stallholders get a chance to show off what they’ve made, and it will be full of great things to see and people to talk to. However, one of the most interesting things that unites the visitors – their skills and the things they make – is largely invisible when they’re in the room.
So, we’re curious to find out what skills people have, and will be asking everyone to contribute to a group dataset – think of it as a Geek Code for Makers. You’ll be able to join in on our stand, and your data will become part of a live visualisation by digital artist Simon Katan that will build up over the course of the day.
There are also tattoos. Temporary ones of course, but if you’d like to show the room what you can do, this is your chance. Kudos to anyone who can tell us what each symbol is and why.
Entry to Maker Faire is free as long as you register, so see you there.
