I had a fun week

I had a fun week last week.

On Tuesday, I met up with Yasmine Evjen and Russell Ivanovic of Relay FM’s Material podcast.

"Me with Yasmine and Russell in front of the Infinite Loop sign."

It was fun to meet the people behind one of my favorite podcasts, even if I was a little awkward.1 I wish we could have chatted longer, but I’m glad that I got to meet them. Plus they had a busy week ahead!2

I can’t wait to go to RelayCon during WWDC and meet other Relay podcasters.

Yesterday, Ryan and I went out to the San Mateo Maker Faire. I’m not sure if it’s the San Mateo faire or just the Bay Area. I’ve heard it both ways.

When I was at Georgia Tech, there was a Mini Maker Faire3 and that was a lot of fun to visit. I learned how to pick a lock there.

I’ve always heard as the Bay Area Maker Faire as the Maker Faire. It was a required pilgrimage.

For me, I finally got see a lot of things I’ve just read about. I finally got to see the cupcake cars (so cute!) and the life size Mousetrap in action. The sander races with the stuffed horses were hilarious!4

Best of all I got to meet BB-8!

"Me meeting BB-8"

Even though we only went for a day, it was a lot of fun and I’d suggest that anyone should visit. There’s a lot of interesting people and creations at the Maker Faire and I’m sure there’s something for everyone.

  1. Meeting celebrities or people you look up to is still weird to me. 

  2. Google IO 

  3. Apparently, it’s not mini anymore. 

  4. Brown Pony always beat Pegasus.
