North Carolina Show & Tell Final details

Well, semi-final details anyway.
Here's what we've got:
Show & Tell, Boone, North Carolina.
We'll be at the Bald Guy Brew coffee shop, November 8th, 2 PM. If you're interested in coming PM me or email me at the address I have listed on my profile.
If you want to come but don't have a project or skill you want to talk about, make some awesome some food and bring that.
If you're driving any distance and need to stay in town overnight, PM me about that too. I'll point you in the right direction.

It's looking like it will be a great crowd. We'll have a blacksmith, some guys from the ASU solar club, snacks, and a lot of other great stuff going on. If you have a PowerPoint for your presentation, put it on a USB drive. We'll have a screen and a computer. And coffee.

Hope to see you there! If you plan on coming let us know so we have a general headcount.

I'm resurrecting this topic to bring something exciting to the attention of the NC Instructables folks: MAKER FAIRE: NC!

A small group of RDU-area makers together with ShopBot are planning a regional maker faire next spring.  Details are still being hammered out but you can keep up with the latest information on the website, twitter, or facebook.
The Maker Faire:NC announced a date a few weeks back.  April 25, 2010.  Be there!

It actually turned out pretty well. Not as many people as i had hoped... 3 canceled last minute and one got stranded in another county. We had about 15 people total show up. Only 3 or 4 talked about projects, but we had some very productive conversation. Jordan Drake, who hosts The Tech Report and the Over Clockers Forum podcasts, and now has his own radio show talked about what he does and gave us his story on how he got there. Then there was me, of course. I talked about biodiesel, biofuels, the global food economy, etc. Then we had a guy there talking about a hydrogen system he's built and put in his car to improve his gas mileage by 50%. And it works. He also talked about some future designs, and we bounced ideas around for a while. I think we had enough success that we'll do it again real soon. I do have pictures. As soon as I can get them from my camera to the the web I'll post a topic saying what I just said and some more.
