In preparation for Maker Faire in Austin October 20-21, I’ll be coming to Texas in late August and September. We’ve already spent a lot of time in Austin rounding up makers. Now I 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, I’d like to hear from you so I can encourage you to to come to Maker Faire.
If there’s interest, I 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 me. 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 next week, 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.

As excited as I am to know that you are coming to TX i cannot help but be seriously bummed as well…
Halloween is a HUGE event for me and in the weeks leading up to the big event every spare moment will be taken up with rigging, building and sculpting my displays
since this is probably the case for a lot of other Makers out there i’m a little surprised that you’d book a faire so close to Halloween.
if you’d considering moving it to November i’ll be your BFF!!!!!
Theoretically, you could sign up as a Maker and bring your entire collection of Halloween displays. I would not be surprised to see some Halloween decorations at the Faire. I hope you decide to rent a truck and haul your displays there, as they sound neat if they take so much time.
:D Texas is the best. I cannot wait until the 20th.

I know I am bringing some Halloween-themed stuff from this and past haunts. It’s perhaps a bit of a nuisance, but portable stuff ports, and it would be cool to see who is doing what around the area.
