Maker Faire NY Panel: Ask a Maker!

Jimmy DiResta, Sophy Wong, Lenore Edman, Matt Stultz

I’m excited to be hosting an “Ask a Maker!” panel at Maker Faire New York. The panel will be on Saturday, September 22 at 3:30 pm on the Make: Frontiers stage. My guests will include Jimmy DiResta, Sophy Wong, and Matt Stultz.

I’ll be accepting audience questions for these amazing makers with a broad range of skills and experiences. If you have questions but aren’t going to be at Maker Faire NY, you can submit them in the comments here, or send them to me by email. Questions about aspects of making including processes, tools, inspiration, sourcing, design, and techniques are all welcome. I’ll accept questions about genres of making including electronics, woodworking, sewing, digital fabrication, papercraft, writing, video making, cooking and more.

The rest of the schedule of performances and talks looks amazing, and there is a great group of makers showing their projects as well. Hope to see you there!

  1. Question 1: Where do you get your inspiration to make from?

    Question 2: What’s your favorite thing that you’ve ever worked on, or assisted with (as we are all interdependent in projects.)


  2. When time/budget becomes a very real constraint, what’s the first thing to be dropped off of the design?

  3. I unfortunately won’t be able to make it, but I have been wondering: when playing with soft circuits and other fairly low-voltage projects, what’s the maximum battery size that can be used without starting to worry about fire safety (assuming “normal” materials like cotton, acrylic stuffing, etc – but excluding things like “gasoline-soaked rags”)?
