I think this slideshow, with audio excerpts from makers at the Faire, does an excellent job of covering what’s interesting, unique, and important about Maker Faires and the maker movement in general. It was put together by Sarah Tew of CBS Interactive.

    They were there? I met a still photographer working for NBC News. I did not see anything claiming to be that outfit. (Sidenote, C-NET has a bad habit of misjudging the relevance of the community that Make magazine normally represents.)

    And I am certain I saw someone who represented the magazine there.

    The piece was done by Sarah Tew of CBS Interactive. I’m not sure what their arrangement is with CNET.
