    It is my humble opinion the Faire was too much Arts and Crafts and not enough Engineering and Science. It was like a craft show with some nerds stuck in the corner. The Maker Stage would have been great would you actually been able to hear and see what the presenters were doing; but an open on three sides tent and the strong Texas sun made it rather difficult. Not to mention the electric guitar bike and various explosions going off constantly near by. The maker shed and maker stage should have traded places.

    @justdiy: Agreed. I enjoyed the opportunity to see some of the creators of some projects featured here (the latest iteration of the Stribe was really slick) but wish it was less yarn and hot glue craft and more creative engineering.

    I had the best of both worlds. Nerds and crafts:

    @justDIY – wow, folks have said it was too much science and engineering and not enough art/crafts. i guess it depends on who you are and what you’re in to.
