October 24th is the date of the 2010 East Bay Mini Maker Faire. It looks like they’ve got a lot of great makers, crafters, and performers lined up, from robot builders to the Church of Craft, to Howtoons (with novelist Michael Chabon!). And Tim O’Reilly will be there teaching you how to make jam (I’m not kidding!). See their list of over 50 makers and performers here.
