Tomorrow, yours truly is shipping out to sunny San Mateo, California, for the second-annual Maker Faire. Put on by our good friends at Make and Craft magazines, the Faire is quickly turning into the ultimate DIY gathering anywhere. Ever! I'll be there scoping out the wildest projects and demos—the list is literally too long and amazing to even get into, but you can check out the full schedule over on the Make site, as well as the previews they've been running all month of what we'll be seeing this weekend (personally, I'm pretty pumped for the disco giraffe we featured in How 2.0 a few months back).
So stay tuned here for updates, photos and videos from Maker Faire this weekend. If you're in the Bay Area, come say hi. —John Mahoney
