How’d you like to chat with the world’s most interesting makers? Well, we’re here to help.

Make: is proud to kick off our new monthly “Maker Chat” series with a couple of the stars of the Maker Movement: Star Simpson (@starsandrobots) and Ariel Waldman (@arielwaldman). It’ll happen Wednesday May 18, starting at 3pm PST. Follow @make on Twitter and look for the #MakerChat and fire your questions at these amazing makers! And then find them at Maker Faire Bay Area this weekend!

Monthly Maker Chat Star Simpson

Maker star Star Simpson, with stars. Because stars.

So, we love this idea so much, we’re going to keep it going! We’ll pick fascinating makers every month, and host them in a live TweetChat so you can pepper them with your questions and get the answers you’ve been itching to know — just tweet them to #MakerChat. A helpful Make: editor will moderate the proceedings.

Be sure to subscribe to the Make: newsletter to be notified of scheduled chats, but if you miss one, no worries, we’ll post the conversations here on makezine.com after the fact, and you can ask your questions in the comments.

We’re psyched to be facilitating these fun Q&As — we know there’s going to be some great stuff, and you’re sure to be inspired. Got a maker you’d like us to get in the mix? Or are you a maker with a great story to tell? Let us know!
