This weekend, a handful of us from the SketchUp team will be in beautiful Austin, Texas attending Maker Faire. In case you didn't know, Maker Faire celebrates the "Do-It-Yourselfer" in everyone; it features tools and tricks for enhancing all your arts, crafts, engineering, and science projects. We'll be at the Google booth, demonstrating how to use SketchUp to explore ideas digitally by creating mock-ups of attendees' projects. To give you an idea of what Maker Faire is all about, here are three things I'm working on at the moment (you can see photos of the finished products in this web album).
This year we'll be sharing a booth with the team from YouTube; they have some exciting new resources for folks who get inspired to make stuff by watching videos. If you're in the neighborhood, be sure to stop by our booth and say hello!
