Missed the Seattle Mini Maker Faire on June 2nd?

Never fear, media is here:

  • Finally see a Maker Faire in 3D, thanks to Coldstreams!  (Nerd note:  above video was shot using two Kodak Playsport Zx3 cameras on a monopod, and edited using Magix Movie Edit Pro MX Plus.)
  • Travels with Woot and Geekwire both did great still-image blog coverage of the first-ever Seattle Mini Maker Faire. Hard not to love pics of Daniel Robbins’ fastener-free SketchUp-generated dollhouses and the glowing fish tank by the Magnicians (nickel particles+electromagnets+LEDs).
  • Hank of Espresso Buzz Photography put up a beautiful set on Flickr.
  • Fabien & Bertrand from the [Nwazet team provided in-depth documentation with good “who are you and what do you make?” interviews (watch below).

Christin Boyd, producer of the Seattle Mini Maker Faire, said the event featured a grand total of fifty makers and twenty-one presentations and workshops, and that over 2800 attendees came down to the Seattle Center over the course of the two days.  Cheers, Seattle!

    Hi, I was at the Seattle Mini Maker Faire with my camera and a guy walked over to me and said, “They want to talk to you first before you take any pictures.” He was very serious and said it twice.

    I saw lots of cameras and didn’t notice any prominent signs about not taking pictures without permission, so could someone explain what the policy for taking pictures at Maker Faires is?
