Do Something Analog Like attend a Mini Maker Faire!!! They aren’t as big and overwhelming, but there’s still a ton of amazing making going on… we had our first Mini Maker Faire in Alameda a couple weeks ago. Patrick's youngest son built a SpinBot, his oldest tried Plastic Weaving, the SailDrone was epic, and we've got lots more from the Faire in the video. Go find your local Mini Maker Faire and see what kind of amazing things are up in your area!
