Mini Maker Faire 2014

April 29, 2014
Orlando Mini Maker Faire is September 13 and 14 this year.  

Orlando Mini Maker Faire is a community-organized, family-friendly celebration featuring local do-it-yourself science and technology, art, rockets, robots, crafts, music, hands-on-activities, and more. It’s an event where people show what they are making and share what they are learning. 

The individuals behind these exhibits are known as “Makers” and they range from tech-enthusiasts to crafters to homesteaders to scientists to garage tinkerers. Makers are of all ages and come from many backgrounds. They all share a love for innovation and creativity, as well as an educational spirit to inspire and encourage new Makers. The even-larger, 2-day, 2014 Orlando Mini Maker Faire at the Orlando Science Center will feature exhibits and experimentation across the spectrum of science, engineering, art, performance and craft.

Call For makers is now OPEN! You can register and apply at 
www.callformakers.org/orlando2014

Last year there were 3500 attendees from a wide demographic.  This is a great place to do your market survey.

February 11, 2014

Hello Friends,

 

We definitely made some progress toward defeating the current patent legislation in the trip to Washington DC this past week. There is no question that we are making an impact.

 

Prior to the trip, we were alerted by an insider to a lunch meeting where lobbyists pushing the legislation were promoting the following: The patent reform debate has been painted as one of inventors vs. patent troll victims. Yet these two don't have to be enemies. We can protect intellectual ...

Daymond John Academy Review - Dec. 2013

December 10, 2013
I just finished the $1500 (for 2 people) 3 day Daymond John Academy class.  They have a first day free policy after you have paid the fee.  That is if you are not satisfied at the end of the first day you can get a complete refund.  I stayed.  I feel it was a worthwhile experience.  They pretty much did what they said they would.  They outlined the things you would need to do to create a successful, scaleable, sustainable business.  If someone really wanted to dive into the big corporat...
