Maker Faire, newspaper coverage

The Maker Faire got some great coverage in a recent article by the NYT:

At first blush, then, this festival, sponsored by Make magazine, is a gathering place of pyromaniacs and noise junkies, the multiply pierced and the extensively tattooed. But wander awhile, and the showy surface gives way to a wondrous thing: the gathering of folks from all walks of life who blend science, technology, craft and art to make things both goofy and grand.

Aside from my giddy excitement of visiting the festival, this article does a good job of synthesizing the maker’s movement.
