Maker Faire

This past weekend we went to the Maker Faire in Northern California. It was huge, with tons of things to see and do... and lots of walking. At the end of the day I was collapsing, but it was a riot. Same on Sunday, where we had the chance to see Adam Savage who is not only funny, but very inspiring. I felt moved. Really.  I was way over in a corner but got a little video of the end of his show, and he shared the books that inspired him, and some quotes that made him go in the direction he is now: "Follow your passion". At the end he went into the Tesla coils, in the Arc Attack thing, it was so funny!

My video was not as good, so I'm linking to this one.
I collected a bunch of websites to check out later on, visited great booths and did a little shopping. They had a whole area for the Steam Punk stuff and my daughter didn't want to move from there LoL.
It was a blast, but I'm glad it's only once a year, because it took me a while to recup ;o)


  1. I will have to show this to my dd, she loves Adam Savage and she is a huge Myth Buster fan!

  2. Hey Martha, sounds like you had a great weekend ;o) Great video! Have a nice day ;o)

  3. Sounds fun. I know all too well what you mean about being wiped out from these kinds of things!

  4. Jacque, the guy is awesome in person, you can't help but being a fan!
