MAKE hit the World Science Festival in NYC today, packed with tons of people – the event took over Washington Square park and parts of NYU. For the kids there were lots of hands on exhibits and for adults (and kids) lots of sessions/events/talks – it was so popular the ticketed events were sold out or standing room only – events like this and our own Maker Faire seem to indicated there is more demand than supply for science and that.. is a good thing! Great event, hope to see it happen each year in NYC! – more photos here & check out their site for additional day/evening events on Sunday.

    This brings up a question that’s been rattling around in my mind for a while. Is there a Make scene in Montreal, Canada? It’s such a big city, and with three universities I would assume that there would at least be a few Make readers (myself among them, or soon to be). I’ve checked Dorkbot:MTL, but they haven’t done anything since January 2007 (which is pretty depressing).

    That’s someone’s ’08 FIRST robot. Not sure who’s though.
