This week is Maker Faire New York City, and it holds a special place in my heart, for a number of reasons. A large part is because Maker Faire is where I started out, 3 years ago, with my humble little TouchShield Legacy and Arduino. At the time, I was traveling quite a bit for my day job, and barely had time to sit in one place long enough to do any serious development.

Fast forward to the present - now I live in Boston, and after three years of driving or flying myself out to San Mateo for Maker Faire's, I'm pretty excited to have one in my own back yard... relatively speaking, that is.
In the past, I've set up tables with some of my favorite hacks. But this time, I'm going to be joined by Justin, Will, and Francis, fellow hackers at Liquidware. And instead of showing off only just my Open Source Hardware hacks, all 4 of us are going to bring along demos and hacks using the latest gadgets.
And at least one of the projects hasn't really been blogged about, because it's still in demo form. Dun dun dun :-)
Ok, back to packing for a busy week ahead...
