The Treehouse Group and Site 3 coLaboratory are co-organizing a Mini Maker Faire in Toronto, May 7 & 8, at the Evergreen Brick Works. A Maker Faire is a place for Makers to come together to compare notes, see what others are doing, and to spark ideas for new projects and expanded collaboration. It facilitates the exchange of information throughout a community whose members in many cases work alone or in groups that have limited opportunities to associate with one-another. Toronto Mini Maker Faire will include: commercial and non-commercial Makers, designers, hackerspaces, workshops, demos and speakers. It will be entertaining and educational. The majority of our booths will be interactive, and visitors will have opportunities to take home a part of the experience when they participate.Mini Maker Faire Toronto (Thanks, Joe!)
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
