A look back at the Faire

An impressive number of attendees took photos and videos of the Faire on the day so it seems appropriate to do a quick round up. First off there’s a Flickr group pool of photos which has no less than 18 contributors with nearly 300 photos! Well worth a browse.

There’s also a good deal of video of the day:

Thanks to everyone for the fantastic pictures and videos and, yes, we’re already thinking about the next one…

Welcome to Mini Maker Faire Melbourne!

We’ll be officially announcing the venue soon.  Our primary venue choice is confirmed – pending final checks and approvals.

You’ll also have a number of other channels beside this website from which you can get updates: Twitter, Google Plus, a mailing list and possibly even Facebook.  We’ll follow up with an official post about those channels soon.

If you’re a “Maker”, start thinking about what you’d like to exhibit or what you’d like to show or teach others.  Check out the Maker page for registration details.
