    Maker Faire, here we come!

    Published on - May 17, 2012 by shinotanaka


    We've been busy preparing for the Bay Area Maker Faire this weekend with coffee cups in hand (read: LOTS of caffeine). It has been a whirlwind, but a fun one at that!

    Tuesday we attended the Make's Hardware Innovation Workshop at Xerox PARC in Palo Alto where we met really awesome folks in the open-hardware, maker, creator space. Dale Doughtery made a point to come by and introduce himself and thank everyone for attending. Love that! Kai keynoted on Wednesday along with other fantastic industry leaders. Check out a great blog post from Make on memorable quotes and photos.

    Quite possibly the best quote from the event (altho there were MANY!):

    I think today will be recognized as a day when we all realized this is an entrepreneurial movement. And a revolution.” – Tim O’Reilly

    Friday we'll be at the event center setting up our booth followed by an evening of meeting other Maker Faire sponsors over some paella. Seriously. Paella?! How can you say no to that?!

    Come Saturday, we want to make sure we meet every single Tinkercad fan, which means all 100k+ of you! Stop by our booth #23 so we can say "hi." We're also giving away a limited number of t's, which we'll be tweeting, texting, smoke signaling and perhaps even dancing about =) Follow our hashtag this week so you can easily reach us and stay in da know: #tinkercadmaker.

    In the meantime, we leave you with this simple visual...

    Yeah. It's a jump shot.
