In just a few short days, the greatest hackers and makers from all around the globe will descend on the Hall of Science in New York City to show off their wares. Our new guy [Adam] and myself will also be there, giving these makers our unending support, putting up a few posts about what they built, and giving out some Hackaday swag.
You may remember last year Hackaday got a free ride to Maker Faire thanks to the Red Bull Creation Contest. We put up a lot of posts and attempted to make some videos of all these great projects. I’d call those efforts a success, but the videos were pretty much inaudible thanks to how freakin’ loud Maker Faire is (and yes, we had a good shotgun mic). This time around we’ll drop the videos and go with a more traditional format. Expect a whole lot of Maker Faire posts on Hackaday Sept. 21 & 22.
If you’re going to the NYC Maker Faire and you see someone in a Hackaday T-shirt, say hi and we’ll give out some stickers. If you’re really cool (and we haven’t run out of them), we’ll throw in a T-shirt.
Since I’ll be around the NYC area that weekend, it’s also possible to do a few Hackerspace Tours for makerlabs in the tri-state area. If you’re part of a Hackerspace somewhere around NYC, send me an email and I’ll figure out how make that work. Bonus points to anyone who invites me to a Breaking Bad party,
