The magic of Maker Faire is spreading, and the excitement around the maker movement is getting noticed.

Today’s example is a piece penned by the LA Times’ Chris O’Brien, who attended the Bay Area Maker Faire this last weekend, and like so many others, came away thrilled and optimistic.

Everything is increasingly complex, whether it’s our cars, the gadgets in our homes, or the computers that run our lives.

The Maker Faire dares us to reverse that trend. And it inspires us to do that by gathering together thousands of people who embody that simple joy of creating things every day.

We completely agree, Chris.
