Steve gets first photo showing the Maker Faire.
In the / talks-and-scenes / Makezine Slideshow Randall Jessee was about 3rd or 4th from the end.
I'll try to add some other fotos Peggy took. We handed out a lot of MAKE:KC cards and Riverfest-MakerFaire-Flyers.The Attendees(most of whom had never heard the term MakerFaire) were excited, Pleasantlly surprised and asked lots of questions."what's a RubensTube?" , "how high do they go?"
Many of the questions were answered "well I buy my Rocket motors at H.M.S.Beagle in Parkville" or "Yes, we meet on Tuesday nites at H.M.S.Beagle in Parkville"
Bob and I were almost speechless after 2 days of "talk, talk, talk" We loved it! Lots of questions and lots of answers.
Let's see if I can add some pictures of the "BigMakerFaireKC"
