I had the pleasure of attending the Ottawa Maker Faire. What an amazing event!!! Thanks to Emily and Ryan and the crowd at artengine, the event is now the talk of the town!
To give you a feel for the festival, take a look at this amazing video by Megan Turnbull a maker I met there.
Here are a few clips I took myself.
Make Faire is an amazing grass roots DIY culture. It has become an important facilitator of inspiration and innovation in the community.
I attended New York World Maker Faire which was probably the largest Maker Faire ever. I theorized that the amazing experience was because of the scale of the event (aside from a collection of other aspects). Well, right or wrong, the Ottawa faire was amazing despite being a smaller event. Here are some clips from the New York event.
