This is the Flickr Group that we set up for sharing photos and videos of your Maker Faire:NC experience. If you're exhibiting and preparing a project, upload and tag some photos to whet the appetites of our attendees! The planning team is going to throw a few pics in there as well.

I just received a note from Jane, inventor of Sugru. Sugru, you may remember, is the squidgy clay-like stuff from England that turns into soft-feel silicone rubber 30 minutes after you open it's sachet. It's awesome for repairing things and "hacking things better."
Sugru recently announced their own version of the Tupperware party: HACKQuariums. "A HACKquarium is a locally hosted night where you get to meet fellow hackers, have a few drinks and stick sugru on your stuff."
Jane would love to show Sugru at the Maker Faire:NC and she's going to send big blobs of Sugru for us to play with! Smashing! What we need is two or more excited volunteers to host two or more Sugru HACKquariums during the Maker Faire:NC.
If you can spare two hours during the Faire to host this event please contact us ASAP to coordinate. I'll put some Sugru in your hands straight away so you can get practicing. Ideally I would like two volunteers so that we can have two HACKquariums during the day.
