Win a Pair of Tickets to Maker Faire This Weekend

Suppose you're the kind of person intrigued by the energy, creativity, and trippiness of Burning Man...but hate the heat, the long drive, and the penchant for nudity (let's face it, it's almost never practiced by the people you want to see) inherent to the festival. We've got you covered...

This weekend's Maker Faire in San Mateothe largest DIY festival in the world, is designed for visionaries of all ages, replete with eye candy, brain candy, hand candy... and perhaps actual candy. We're talking robots, textiles, electronics, puppets, kites, vintage computers and pretty much anything you can fix up or take apart.

Maker Faire: A Celebration of All Things DIY

This year's Faire takes place this weekend, May 30 & 31. Inspired by President Obama's call to action—begin again the work of remaking America—the 2009 theme is "Re-Make America."
