Three things I’ve learned from running a Maker Faire for three years. Here.

I showed at Midwest Maker Fest 2016 in Peoria over the weekend. Here are some of the pictures from it!

Promoting Southland Mini Maker Faire at our Village Board Meeting

I launched my first balloon into near space

if we take what we can see
the engines, driving us mad,
lovers finally hating;
this fish in the market
staring upward into our minds;
flowers rotting, flies web-caught;
riots, roars of caged lions,
clowns in love with dollar bills,
nations moving people like pawns;
daylight thieves with beautiful
nighttime wives and wines;
the crowded jails,
the commonplace unemployed,
dying grass, 2-bit fires;
men old enough to love the grave.

These things, and others, in content
show life swinging on a rotten axis.

But they’ve left us a bit of music
and a spiked show in the corner,
a jigger of scotch, a blue necktie,
a small volume of poems by Rimbaud,
a horse running as if the devil were
twisting his tail
over bluegrass and screaming, and then,
love again
like a streetcar turning the corner
on time,
the city waiting,
the wine and the flowers,
the water walking across the lack
and summer and winter and summer and summer
and winter again.

– Charles Bukowski

Notice the shift. Once we no longer see the computer, we have achieved the promise of computing. I’ve been playing with this tech for the last half year, and am convinced it’s hinting at something radically new. Check it out.
