Road to Maker Faire!

Road to Maker Faire!

Early yesterday morning I got an e-mail from Make saying that my DrawBot project had been accepted to the “Road to Maker Faire Challenge!”  If you check out Make’s latest post inviting applicants for the “Road to Maker Faire Challenge,” you’ll notice the tiny image in the bottom left is from this post.  How cool is that?!

    Congrats! No more need for jealousy, eh? :)

  2. MakerBlock says:

    @Marty: I know!!! I mean, you haven’t seen gloating until you’ve seen a 6-year-old gloat. Actually, as I loudly overacted my disappointment, she comforted me saying that she would share her display area with me. Then we worked out a plan where I would sneak my project in and set up behind her…

  3. That Dan says:

    I am so envious. Just another opportunity I can’t take advantage of because I’m in the wrong country.

  4. MakerBlock says:

    @That Dan: Well, you could always just come down for the faire. Lots of people come from far and wide. It’s supposed to be one of the two largest of the Maker Faires. It really is something to behold.
