I don't mean to spam the list but I got my links wrong in my first post.
The Open Call for World Maker Faire is real, and here are the real links:

thanks to Dave for pointing out my mistake, and I really look forward to seeing your Maker projects!
cheers, Nick Normal
greeting DIYcity users!
my name is Nick Normal and I'm an artist, maker and educator based in Long Island City, Queens, NY.
I wanted to let everyone on this list know that Maker Faire is coming to New York City - and by extension the East Coast! - for the first time later this year, on September 25th and 26th. There's currently an open call for Makers to submit proposals - the deadline is August 15th.
Maker Faire is the world's largest DIY festival - a blend of Art, Technology and Science, combined with family-fun, participation, robots, craft and do-it-yourself ethics.
I'm helping recruit Makers and we're looking for projects involving open-source code, robots, DIY makers, engine-hacks, solder fiends, hobbyists and enthusiasts, fixer-uppers, food makers, etc.
if you DIY we want you involved!
Here's the link to the open call:
