Howdy,

 

The best event I attended last year was the innagural Open Hardware Summit held just before Maker Faire NYC.  Tickets are now on sale for the 2nd annual Summit which takes place on September 15th.  Priced at $50 for "starving artists" (students, artists, non-profits) and $95 for everyone else.  Sponsorship starts at just $300 and includes a free ticket along with your logo on the banner, website & program.

Howdy -

 

I had the pleasure of attending the 2nd annual Maker Faire Detroit this past weekend.  It was a blast, and I witnessed many amazing creations including nanoparticle mind control, a plasma tweeter speaker and a cute little mini laser cutter.

 

I was also very excited to see the ElectroMagnate team talk about their documentary project, "ReMade: The Rebirth of the Maker Movement".  They screened a captivating clip during their talk which delves into the transformation that is taking place in the Detroit area:
