Make: technology on your time; User Generated Content applied to things

Make: is the first magazine devoted entirely to DIY technology projects, MAKE Magazine unites, inspires and informs a growing community of resourceful people who undertake amazing projects in their backyards, basements and garages. Find instructions on e.g. how to hack your plants, extract your DNA, 70's soapbox saga, build a videocam rocket, and head-mounted water cannon.

Make: hosts a European Maker Faire the evening of Wednesday, September 20 in Brussels, Belgium. This event is free and open to anyone possessing the Maker spirit. All Makers are welcome! The hours are 1930 to 2130, and the location is the Hotel Le Plaza, Brussels, Belgium. The Maker Faire event is being held in conjunction with O'Reilly's EuroOSCON Open Source Convention (for more details about EuroOSCON, please visit here).

What really makes a Maker Faire work is the grassroots participation from Makers such as you. If you have an interesting MAKE-like project that you are bursting to share with your fellow Makers, we are actively seeking Makers who would like to exhibit at the Faire. Each exhibiting Maker will be provided with a table, power, Internet connection, and a simple poster board describing their project. Interested in sharing a project? Please write to euromaker@makezine.com and tell us about yourself and your project.
