For everyone in the San Francisco Bay Area, don’t forget about the East Bay Mini Maker Faire going on this Sunday, October 24, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the Park Day School Campus in Oakland. This Mini Maker Faire was organized by a dedicated group of parents as a fundraiser for their school, and we at MAKE are thrilled to see folks organizing Maker Faires at the community level. There will be over 100 makers and crafters exhibiting, along with a whole day of workshops scheduled, including Maker Faire founder Dale Dougherty showing how to make cider with a cider press and speaking about the Young Makers program, as well as Tim O’Reilly teaching how to make his famous jam and scones. Check out the site for all the details, including an extensive list of makers, and of course how to get tickets.

If you are a teacher, check out the post on Make: Education on how to get discounted tickets.

I'm a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. I was an editor on the first 40 volumes of MAKE, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. In particular, covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.
