MAKE Newsletter

February 14, 2012

It's been a busy few weeks for the maker movement. The White House hosted science fair winners, including two of our favorite young makers, Joey Hudy and Ben Hylak. And CNN published several articles and video teasers in anticipation of the upcoming The Next List episode about MAKE (now likely airing Feb 19, 2pm EST). And we launched our new Maker Faire website and announced the Maker Faire Bay Area Call for Makers. Exciting, busy times.
