The second annual Tampa Bay Mini Maker Faire is coming right up in two weeks, on Saturday, March 23, in Hudson, Florida. They’ve got an interesting and diverse group of makers signed up already, and their call for makers is open until March 15. Seen above is an interactive installation from Urban Congo, a group of makers who will be at the Faire this year.

From their site:

Our Tampa Bay Mini Maker Faires are family-friendly events showcasing both established and emerging local “makers” – of machines, robots, DIY science and technology, urban farming and sustainability, alternative energy, bicycles, unique hand-made crafts, music and food, and educational workshops and installations and much much more!

I’m a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.

I was an editor for the first 40 volumes of MAKE. The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. Covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made.
