I spent most of last Saturday at the Maker Faire in San Mateo learning how to do really nerdy things such as hacking computers, learning how to make a diet coke and mentos symphony (from the Youtube guys themselves), and learning how Tesla coils work (from Mythbusters, Adam Savage). Incredible!!!

-Lots of burners (as in Burning Man attendees) and their art
-Cupcake cars!!
-Ok Go
-Free things!
-This conversation:

LADY:Would you like to learn to solder today? It's only $1. 
ME:No thanks. I don't really feel like soldering right now. 
LADY:Oh, you solder?!? 
LADY:(Cuts me off and speaks, for like 10 minutes, about things that are completely over my head.) 
ME:Thank you.

Pictures on the way!!
