advance tickets are on sale.  I have purchased mine.



Greetings Fellow Makers, Crafters, Hackers, and Backyard Scientists:

Without a doubt the most popular question we've received over the past
year is "When is the next Maker Faire?" In fact, Maker Faire weekend is
just 4 weeks away on May 19th and 20th. The location: The San Mateo
County Fairgrounds, just 15 minutes south of San Francisco. 

If you missed our first Maker Faire last April, the best way to describe
this family-friendly weekend is part science fair, part craft fair, part
county fair, and part Burning Man. A two-day, family-friendly event
celebrating arts, crafts, engineering, science projects, and the
do-it-yourself (DIY) mindset, Maker Faire is for creative, resourceful
folks who like to tinker and love to make things. We call them Makers.
Check it out: 

Here's a small taste of what we have lined up for you: Survival Research
Labs (SRL), Five Foot Russian Submarine, Junkyard Jet, Bazaar Bizarre,
Silicon Death Valley, RoboGames' Combat Robots, Power Tool Drag Races,
Neverwas Haul, Life-size Mousetrap, Walking Robotic Chariot, Build Your
Own Blinkybug, The Electric Giraffe, The Disgusting Spectacle,
Tomato-basket Dragons and Whales, Internet Crane Game, The Art of Motion
Control, Puppy Mover Monorail, Model Rocket Video Camera, Hydrofoils
(homemade, human-powered, ornithopter and wooden), Chris Benton's Kite
Aerial Photography, Electric Supercars, Swap-O-Rama-Rama, Roobma
Hacking, Winners of the Most Spectacular Failures contest, and acres

With all the buzz around Maker Faire, we're anticipating a huge turnout
(last year we had north of 20,000). But you can avoid the lines and save
yourself some bucks by purchasing tickets online:
