Let's Make Robots!

Prep for Maker Faire 2013 NYC

Howdy Y'all,

We are starting to get close to Maker Faire this year and I suppose it is time to start getting some ducks in a row.

I am planning on attending Education Day as well as the Fair itself, representing both Let's Make Robots and Rocket Brand Studios. All are welcome of course, as well as your bots. It also looks like I will be the Big Chief of the Booth this year so feel free to drop me a line with questions etc., I am the "super head-guy coordinator guy of LMR at MF, guy".

Send your robot to Maker Faire

Can't make it to Maker Faire this year?

Maybe your robot can!

Last year, quite a few people sent their robots to me to be displayed at Maker Faire. They were a big hit! I even made up some shirts to thanks some of the folk that sent robots from far away.

 

TinHead and ignoblegnome meet up in NYC

TinHead let it be known that he'd be in the NYC area this weekend following some company training. I couldn't resist the opportunity to meet him in person.

After some communications challenges, we met up in Times Square and then walked down to Bryant Park for some overpriced beer. (Drinks are pretty pricey in NYC.) We were accompanied by TinHead's four lovely co-workers, who were very nice.
