To do this weekend: Maker Faire Bay Area

Maker Faire Bay Area is this weekend, in San Mateo, California! Pesco, Mark and I will all be there, and I'm sure many of you reading Boing Boing will be, too. Mark has been posting some great behind-the-scenes snapshots on his Instagram. And of course, the #makerfaire hashtag is a good way to peek at the flood of tweets, videos, and images attendees and organizers will be sharing today.

I will be interviewing National Geographic TV host Sean Riley about the making of his show "World's Toughest Fixes." We will also be talking about the invisible importance of heavy machinery, and of the courage it takes to be a fixer.
