Thanks for the offer! I think its really valuable to provide the
opportunity to do small print jobs for those who dont have a printer.
A local web dev shop setup http://makerfactory.com/
for just that
purpose though it doesnt get much use because not many people with
printers know about it.

The Maker Center at OMSI was the most exciting news of the Faire!
'The idea for a Maker Faire had been tossed around at OMSI for several
years, but it fast-tracked the event this spring when it was awarded a
$100,000 to create a Maker Center in the museum.'
