Quite a commotion was caused at Tuesday’s Dorkbot DC when a protester disrupted the proceedings to air her grievances over perceived geographical prejudice in Maker Faire locations. Actually, it was Dorkbot DC stalwartly member Katie Bechtold and it was all in good fun. Maker Media’s Brian Jepson, who recently moved to DC and was attending his first meeting, explained what we *are* doing to get more Maker Faire-type experiences to other cities (mini Maker Faires/Maker Squares, Make: City groups, American Maker, etc.).
