Well it is the "Maker Faire". I don't see a problem with that.

"Maker Faire" is trademarked by O'Reilly Media and technically that term shouldn't be used without their permission. That's my understanding from an earlier discussion on this.

I wasn't implying the were are or should calling it Maker Faire, I'm just saying why they probably made that typo.

I don't see minne-faire as any more objectionable than minne-fair from any copyright POV.

Date finalized (Feb 13). I will add to calendar- I usually do this with our events when I think of it.

EDIT: Done!
Ummmm, I just went to our Google calendar and didn't see it listed.

And who says we don't have their permission?

We effectively do, from both Sherry Huss and Dale Dougherty. I think that's as good as it's going to get.

I got over to Ax-Man in St. Paul today. A lot of people milling around! I left some more business cards at the counter. I also got about $20 worth of small stuff that I'm donating to the raffle for this event.

For the record, I believe Jude is looking into the porta-potty option.

Wayne's been working on a sign, I know.

I'm also contacting some of my maker and artist friends; we had a few folks in the group volunteer for the maker portion but I think, as yet, nobody for the artist section.

The remaining tasks (signage, project/hackerspace slideshow, donation boxes) have not yet been taken.

Also, I'd like to encourage all of you to contact anyone you think may like to exhibit at this event.

I can take on the task of making some of the donation boxes, making a few out of steel, and somehow bolting them to something in the space.

Steel, huh? That's pretty cool...

Some day, if I ever get my woodworking chops up, I want to make one with an Art Deco feel to it. I <3 the Deco.
