YoungMakers: How can we give more kids the opportunity to make things and bring them to exhibit at MakerFaire? That was the question asked first by Tony De Rose of Pixar, who realized how much he and his family enjoyed working on a project and exhibiting it at Maker Faire and wanted to help provide a similar opportunity for others. In collaboration with Tony and the Exploratorium, we’ve organized the Young Makers program, starting first in the Bay Area in 2010.
May'2015: Exhilarating though a MakerFaire can be, it's a fleeting experience. "There is this really passionate, powerful community surrounding the business," says Maker Media CEO Gregg Brockway. "You see it most tangibly at MakerFaire, where you have all these different communities coming together. For most people, that's a one- to two-day thing every year, and then they go away and we don't really talk to them until the next Maker Faire."... That's where Maker Space comes in. The most ambitious web-based manifestation of Dougherty's maker vision so far, it's a social network designed to let makers share their projects with words, images, and videos. Other members can browse projects, find ones that spark their creativity, and comment on them.
