Cool Stuff We Like: Portland Mini Maker Faire, Pt. 1 | Big and Open Data, FabLab, Internet of things | Scoop.it

I went to the first day of thePortland Mini Maker Faire this morning. What a perfect day for it; unseasonably warm and sunny. I arrived a half hour after the gates opened and already there was a good crowd inside and a long line waiting to buy tickets. A lot of families with kids in attendance. 

 

There were a lot of participants, and I took a lot of pics, so this is just the first in a series of posts I will be doing... may be at it all week, in fact!
