Maker Faire Weekend Recap:  Albuquerque and Dover

The morning after for a Maker Faire organizer is a sweet mix of exhaustion and bliss. So we’re thinking of the organizers this morning of this past weekend’s 2nd annual Albuquerque Mini Maker Faire (New Mexico) and the first-ever Dover Mini Maker Faire (New Hampshire).

Best wishes to everyone who participated! We hope you are enjoying the classic Maker Faire “hangover”: inspiration and optimism! Here’s some evidence that indicates that that may be the case:
