Who's Going to the Maker Faire? Answered

Hey everyone! I was just wondering who was going to the maker faire! I thought it might be cool to meet some of the instructable go-ers'!

Everyone from instructables who is at the NY Faire needs to wear an instructables T-Shirt and a name-tag with our username on it. That way we can all identify each other.

Name tags would be fun.

How about a mod from Make an instructables patch to apply to your projects by derte84? Have the qr-code link to our profile's URL.  Design a border similar to derte84's that highlights/advertises Instructables.

Any one else interested?  Design collaboration?

That's a good idea! Can we just copy that and edit our username, picture and QR-code onto it?

Not my best work... just a quick hack to serve as an example. I'd like to see a better design- lets see what can come up.

We'll have an Instructables booth! Come by and say hi, and pick up some stickers. ;)

The iblers that will be at the booth are tentatively, Christy, Eric, Corvidae and Dave.

We are always happy to have people drop by and show off their projects for a little while though. ;-)

If anyone is interested in helping out for a little while, there may be a free day pass involved (although, I'm not sure what they NYC ticket situation looks like yet). Interested parties should PM me for details.

Making a quick buck, hawking your wares, and child labor are what made our city so great.

Can I get a raise? Can I fly in First Class?
I'm sorry, Dave. I'm afraid I can't do that.

     he must get that a lot, who is he?

My tickets should be in the mail soon.

Dave is our UI Engineer. He is already in NY. I think he will get to fly the L.I.E.

more like stall or put in a holding pattern. The Long Island Expressway is a parking lot around there during rush hour.

Who is tentatively? Some new intern you haven't added to the About page yet (like poor carleyy)?

No... but we have former interns in the NYC area. I believe there is some negotiation (begging and coaxing) taking place.

I think you guys should give out some sillicon bracelets that say instructables. I will design a bracelet and maybe you could sell em' or give them out.

Yes, I hadn't known about the post Kelsey mentioned, but I created an event on Facebook about it, and both them and a few other iblers are going to be there, plus possibly a few others I know (I may even have company with me when I come up there :-) although the wife is not wanting to come :-(

No, that's my fault (hand-typing instead of copy and paste). The timestamp is generated on the server side, and is always San Francisco local time.
