    How could I have missed this?! The closest maker fair/hacking space I hear about is in New York and suddenly I read a post about a faire about an hour away! They better have one next year.

      If you’re in the Detroit area, you should talk to the people at for a hackerspace, Go Tech (, or YAARC ( for enthusiast groups.

      Otherwise, there is the Pumping Station in Chicago ( and Hack Pittsburgh (, both of which are closer to MI then NYC. You are certainly welcome to visit :-).

    You know I luv you, but as ‘youevolve’ points out… you all need to publicize these smaller maker faire events. What happened to the Maker Faire in RI? Since that last blog post (couple weeks ago) I see no mention of it anywhere. I just went to the and again no mention of the RI event.
    Still no maps or any additional information on the site?

    I booked a hotel, and I hope I won’t regret the expense and travel time, if no makers show up. :(

    Beat the drums! Sound the horns!

    Is there any chance it could be a bit sooner next year? College classes started right after that weekend so I couldn’t attend. I tried to find contact info for the group running the fair, but that part of the website is broken.
