#MakerMusings

Taking advantage of Liverpool MakeFest (and following some plot-hatching with Jo Hinchliffe) and the fact that DoES Liverpool now has an amazing new, bigger space that's open on Sundays, the day after MakeFest we're hosting a #MakerBrunch.

It's a deliberately low-key and informal affair, just a place for makers to gather, meet new and old faces, and chat about whatever is of interest.

That said, this tweet from Edafe Onerhime this morning got me thinking about it a bit more...

That reminded me of my #longconf idea from years back, and re-reading that blog post made me realise that the #MakerBrunch is an opportunity to seed a small, related experiment.

I'm going to find a couple of corners of DoES Liverpool and seed them with a poster or conversation topic, and then we can see if that gives people something to discuss. It's a bit more prep work for me (and whoever I ask to help come up with the topics), but will also give a few jumping off points for newcomers who don't know too many other people.

It might not work at all, but I'll no doubt still learn something from doing it, and it won't get in the way of the main aim of the event either way. Let's find out.
