Thanks for the hospitality!
It's been a week since Maker Faire, sorry it's taken so long to post this--I came down with some sort of awful bug the day after I got back to Eugene. I've spent the last several days (including today, my birthday!) just lying around and feeling sorry for myself.
Anyway, I'm starting to feel a bit better this evening, so I just thought I'd say thanks! I had a blast at Maker Faire, helping out at the instructables booth and meeting folks from HQ, fellow authors, and just plain fans of the site. It was really, really great meeting you all and seeing the enthusiasm instructables brings out in people.
In particular, hello and thanks to Mikeasaurus, Laura, Quincy, Gregg, Randy, Sarah, and anyone whose name I forgot in the madness that was last weekend, for making me feel welcome. Special thanks to Christy and Eric for really making me feel at home in a new city!
The week before MF which I spent working in central California, and the couple of weeks leading up to it that I spent preparing for the trip, were incredibly busy and hectic for me. It was fantastic to cap that all off by seeing the weird and wonderful sights at Maker Faire, and meeting for the first time in real life people who I had only known previously on the internet. It really made me feel like a part of the instructables community.
Thanks so much, and hopefully I'll get to see more of SF on my next visit! I didn't even get a chance to see instructables HQ!
