Maker Faire
Went to the Maker Faire today with serious trooper and 37-week-pregnant reeniecooks.

We manned the table for a little while with Jason, Nick (Gerakines), and Krissy (I think I saw Jonathan ever so briefly too). We were a good team...I mentioned to someone, "Oh, and you should hear the LJ Radio stream of our voice posts!" and Jason had it playing on a laptop a few seconds later :-)

Could there be a more incongruously perfect confluence of LiveJournal users than the Faire's fire-breathing-robot-adoring geeks and sew-darn-cute crafters? It's as if the organizers looked at LJ's userbase and thought, "Let's create a thing that appeals to all of them, minus the writers who are too anti-social to leave their homes." (I kid!) I remember first seeing a Bizarre Bazaar (the crafters' show within the show) flyer pinned on reeniecooks's board in her office at home and thinking, "Hmmm, I hope Marina doesn't try to make me tag along to this." But then for some odd rubbernecking reason, I checked the site out and realized what the whole thing and figured it was perfect. A few emails with the marketing folks later, and LJ and TypePad had a table there. The Sixaphone was perfect. I had a few more fun ideas for other demos. I hope we do more of these.

Btw, is it me or could matthew be one of the Myth Busters' brothers?

As far as I know we're not related ;)

Too bad too, he has more fun at work than I do.
