One of my favorite shows of all time is CBS’s Sunday Morning, more so today – Here’s the transcript and video they put together from Maker Faire, it’s fantastic!
(CBS) At the annual Maker Faire just outside San Francisco, the rockets soar, the robots roar, and the Radio Flyer wagons have 300 horsepower under the hood. Dale Dougherty, the publisher of Make magazine, created the faire and he says it’s the next new thing.
“This is kind of like a world’s fair by and for the people,” he told CBS News technology correspondent Daniel Sieberg. “It’s not like institutions. It’s not companies bringing stuff. It’s really individuals just saying, “Here’s what I do.”
The Maker Faire invites people to experience the work of artists, inventors, tinkerers and hackers from all over the country — people who don’t just think out of the box, the things they think up never came in a box. Just about everything here is completely, lovingly home-made, like Lindsey Lawlor’s lumbering, life-size electric giraffe, Russell.
