BLRF Episode 6 — Buffalo Mini Maker Faire

Please give a listen to our newest radio episode, “Old Media’s Not Dead!” This was recorded live at BarCamp Buffalo on April 26th so if you missed that event, you can relive Eunice’s talk now!

Our next video episode will be coming out fairly soon too so stay tuned! Damn it feels good to be off hiatus.

REPRAP 3D PRINTER

While we’re still on the subject of DIY - check out this video about the self-replicating 3D printer. Recent graduate Shane Fitzpatrick successfully manufactured his own 3D printer during his thesis year.

RepRap is by no means the only self-replicating printer but it is reputable and super affordable

Buffalo Lab was repping Mini Maker Faire and it was awesome.

This is my way of saying I haven’t forgotten about the video I was working on about Mini Maker Faire. I’m just putting off production until after my talk at BarCamp Buffalo on Saturday.

Bookbinding
Why?Bookbinding let’s you stitch your stories together. Like papermaking, bookbinding has a long history of being an excellent resource for recording thoughts. To bind a book you simply need to attach pages together. Stitching techniques can be as decorative as you’d like, or as simple as a staple. Binding your own book means you can bind your own sketchbook, and no artist should be without a sketchbook.
What else?Bookbinding gets us thinking about the sequence of things – the cover, the beginning, the middle, and the end of the book. Construct your own narrative of a real (or imagined!) event by writing, illustrating, and binding your story. More curriculum connectors can be found here.

BarCamp Buffalo: Buffalo's Tech Unconference

Hey guys! I’m back from my trip to Japan and want to tell you about something cool that’s coming up in Buffalo!

BarCamp Buffalo is being held on April 26th at the Foundry. It’s an “unconference” where everyone who comes is encouraged to participate by giving a 30-minute talk about any topic they feel passionate about! (Don’t worry, you don’t have to if you are nervous.) But it means that lots of cool people are going to be talking about lots of really varied and interesting topics!

My talk is going to be called “Old Media’s Not Dead!” and I think you will find the format really interesting, especially if you are a fan of the show!

Plus, the conference is free and there are free tacos! Please consider spending a Saturday at the Foundry! :D
