Hi all --
My club (MARCH) is scheduled to exhibit at the inaugural Maker Faire
I assume this is related to Make magazine. I've seen a few issues of that
in the UK (it is hard to find in bookshops, anbd impossible to find in
newsagents...), and from what I've seen it encourages good old 'hacking'.
Not necessarily of computers or even electronics, but making things,
tinkering, creating, etc -- things that many of us on this list hold dear.
NYC. I'm starting to have second thoughts because
we don't "make"
anything, we just make old things work again. Who here has been to a
Maker Faire event, and if so, would a vintage computers exhibit be well
received by the audience?
Hmm.. I am not sure a display of classic computers is exactly on-topic
(may be best ot ask the organisers), but I would ahve thought that making
stuff related to classic computers (e.g. the various disk reader
projects) or using classic computers in creative ways would be very well
Buit I;ve neve attended such an event, so I can't be sure.
As to whether you want to be involved, that is very much up to you.
