Makers are already lining up for day two of Maker Faire Bay Area 2011. If it was anything like yesterday, it should really be something to bleat about.
Here are the salient details for those who are coming to the Faire or for those just curious:
Maker Faire website — Lots of up to date information and content about the event. It’s your main portal to Faire happenings.
Maker Faire Daily — Our fast-moving feed of Faire sights and sounds, contributed to by staff authors and a few alpha makers.

For the first time this year, we’re offering a commemorative Maker Faire Program, a gorgeous 68-page magazine with information on the Faire, interviews with lots of makers, a little content from our Workshop special issue, all sorts of goodies. We’re offering it for sale at the Faire, but we’re also making it available as a free download on the Maker Faire website!
The Blipboard Maker Faire App. A custom geo-location, social media app for the Faire.
Today’s Headliners: At 11am on the Tesla Stage, Fiesta Hall, Discovery channel’s Mike Rowe will be headlining. And at 12 Noon MythBuster’s Adam Savage will take to the stage. Then at 2pm, Nolan Bushnell, best known as the founder of Atari and Chuck E. Cheese’s Pizza Time Theater, and revered as the “Father of the Video Game Industry,” will take the mic. What a line-up!
