Maker James Horeck sent us a link to this awesome Flickr slideshow he’s put together explaining what Maker Faire is, describing his participation in it, and in the process, deftly capturing the look, feel, and spirit of this truly unique and inspiring event. From now on, when people ask me to explain more about Maker Faire (beyond my elevator pitch), I think I’ll point them to this slideshow. [Thanks, Jim!]
