Blipboard is a geo-location social app. The Blipboard team has developed a nifty custom Blipboard sub-domain for Maker Faire. It’s a wonderful way of finding events and people at the Faire, based on your tagged interests and areas of the Faire where you’ve “checked in.” There’s also a schedule of events in the app and a map of the Faire. To access the Blipboard Faire mobile web app, go to maker.blipboard.com.
