It’s always nice to be wished Happy Birthday by your friends. And it’s great when your friends are this fantastic!

Make: would like to extend a heartfelt Thank You to these stellar individuals for participating in Maker Faire over the years, many of whom participated since year one in 2006.

Indeed, it is the people — the many creative, resourceful, curious, diverse, fun, ambitious, and productive people — that have built Maker Faire and the Maker Movement into a recognized economic and cultural global phenomenon.

It’s been fantastic growing up with you all, and we can’t wait to see what emerges over the next 10 years.
