Here is your chance to earn some minutes of fame – and show off that secret project you’ve been working on in your garage. . .

Deadline for proposals is March 15, 2013.

I entered last year. Our theme was “Not Your Grandpa’s Ham Radio!” and generated a lot of interest in our radio clubs.

More information on this year’s event is posted here.

Take a look at some videos from my previous Maker Faire experiences…

My favorite videos from the MakerFaire include a short chat with Jeri Ellsworth and her “key-tar.”

Jeri has some very interesting YouTube videos, too.

And take a look at the giant paella pans cooking away!
