I've never been able to make it to the Maker Faire but I've always assumed I'd fit right in. The idea is the DIY culture needs a place to strut their stuff, and that's what the maker faire is. Sponsored by Make Magazine. There's supposed to be some green transportation vehicles there. I'll be there under a press pass at least on saturday. Hopefully I'll be able to bring one of my electric bicycles along or something.
There's directions on getting there and they're running a shuttle service from the Hayward Park Caltrain station.
