From Motor City to Maker City, Maker Faire comes to Detroit!


This is very exciting, there will be a Maker Faire in Detroit, July
31-Aug 1, 2010. It will be at the Henry Ford Museum, which is my
favorite museum, an amazing place, learn about the evolution of
American industry and creativity. Looking foreword to this one.

To add to this, the Henry Ford is also a functional museum. For example, last December I dropped by the Wright Cycle Shop (yes, the place where the first airplane was developed), in the Greenfield Village part of the museum, i noticed that the grounds keepers drove Ford Model A's around for their work trucks (see photo above).
