Reaching out to Makers in Texas

Reaching out to Makers in Texas

 Llbeast Images Texasflag
In preparation for Maker Faire in Austin October 20-21, Dale will be going to Texas in late August and September. We’ve already spent a lot of time in Austin rounding up makers. Now we want to make sure we reach makers from the entire state of Texas. Are you a maker who lives in Houston, Dallas and San Antonio? Are you involved in making things at Rice or Texas A&M? If so, we’d like to hear from you so we can encourage you to to come to Maker Faire.

If there’s interest, we can make plans to meet groups of local makers on one of my upcoming trips. We can organize a meeting in a coffee shop or pub. If you live or work in one of these cities or universities, please contact us. Also, please feel free to send me introductions to makers that should be invited to participate in Maker Faire. You can also direct your fellow makers to the Maker Faire entry form. Our deadline for open entries closes TODAY August 15. We will continue to take entries by invitation after that date.

So please help us make sure we see all of Texas at Maker Faire. We’ve already got a great program lined up but we’re always looking to discover more makers – Link.

    If all goes well, I will be attending with my two sons. Our third child is expected to arrive the first week of October. If mother and new baby are doing well I have been granted permission to bring the boys to the faire for a day. I am trying to get some more makers from San Antonio to head up there…

    I saw a bumpersticker on a Volvo wagon i’m quite sure it said “FCK TEXAS”.
