Finally! Getting to take a breather after the initial buzz since we made our official launch announcement and attended the White House Maker Faire on Wednesday, June 18th. President Obama gave an inspiring address on the Maker Movement and how it is transforming America.
Cool things we saw and people we met:
- David Perry of OpenFab PDX and his electric "F-F-Fiddle"
- OpenROV engineers/entrepreneurs Eric Stackpole and David Lang
- The SketchUp crowd
- Joey "Marshmallow" Hudy, and Julie Hudy (possibly the coolest Mom in the world)
- Two Bit Circus' Eric Gradman and team
- The Sparkfun team, wearing really cool watches
A very special thanks to Robbie Barbero and the White House OSTP for inviting us and making the event such a great day; Maker Faire for sponsoring the event; Jordan Miller for putting in a good for us with Robbie et al. and seeding the idea; our team member, Jeremy Swan for making the connection with Jordan, along with our awesome videos and exhibit materials; Emmett Lalish for his DNA playset.
