Thanks… and onward to DC!

I could go on for many paragraphs about how great Saturday’s Eugene Mini Maker Faire was…

But I think I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.

Thanks to SeenEUGENE for coming to take these great pictures. You can also watch and read more about the Faire from the Register-Guard and KMTR.

Many thanks are in order, to the 100+ maker exhibitors, to the volunteers of Eugene Active 20-30 Club for helping us get set up, to the staff and volunteers of the Science Factory, to all of our partners and sponsors…

And of course, to you! Thanks for visiting, and thanks for making.

And if you were inspired by what you saw at the Faire, now is the perfect time to get started on making something awesome! This Friday marks the start of the National Week of Making. The White House is holding a kickoff event on Friday morning, and I’m thrilled be on my way there to represent Oregon at a workshop of maker organizers from around the country.

And if you have any questions you’d like answered about how the maker movement looks on the national level, don’t hesitate to e-mail me with your questions or thoughts.

The maker movement is going places. I hope you’ll join us for the ride.
