I missed the buried lede in last week’s announcement by the White House of the “Week of Making.” I assumed there was going to be a second White House Maker Faire during that week, when it states there will be a *National* Maker Faire. At the moment the Faire’s most active web presence is on social media. Its website currently is just an information subscription request.
The Faire will be held at the University of the District of Columbia. The University is partnering with the District Government, the organizers of the DC Mini Maker Faire and Maker Media to put on the event. Several government agencies are committed to attend the Faire, which will take place June 12-13 (the beginning of the Week of Making).
More information is forthcoming. But with the Week of Making less than 2 months away, I wish the information would come sooner.
