It was my idea to have an open-source connected home of the future. My scheme was accepted by brave new geeks, brilliant people, but mostly male. They gave the house, "Casa Jasmina," my name: I am grateful for that, but the house is not altogether comfortable.
I've struggled with writing about the Maker Faire for about a month (I'm press- not a journalist). It's easy to gush about the wonders of tech's open pastures, or tougher to diametrically write existentially about future doomsday scenarios, which I admit is much easier for me.

The World Maker Faire New York is a lot to take in. I'm not sure I really saw all of it during the two days. There isn't a more natural location for the World Maker Faire New York than the New York Hall of Science.
My name is Paul Taylor; I am a Systems Engineer living down in Australia. When I'm not riding Kangaroos or swatting flies, I have been developing a Wireless Digital Katana. It is a high-speed, high-accuracy motion controller. Currently I am running a Kickstarter campaign to fund my project. This all began months ago when another Kickstarter campaign failed to deliver.
Thirty-five thousand people visited the three story Italian Makers exhibit in Rome, where two hundred Makers showed off their gadgets and products. It was fiesta all'italiana.
