Maker Faire Austin in Full Swing

Maker Faire Austin is in full swing. I’m not there, having just finished up the Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco, recuperating at home before heading out Monday for a MySQL board meeting in London, but I’m watching the goings-on via Flickr, at home via my chumby. Chumby is a streaming media device that replaces the old clock radio. You can configure it with all kinds of flash widgets — great for ambient information. They also support a “virtual chumby” so I can share with you what I’m watching now. Right now, I’ve got it set to Scott Beale (laughingsquid)’s flickr photo stream from Maker Faire Austin:

Update: As Scott wasn’t adding more photos as quickly as I thought, I added a photostream of any photos tagged makerfaireaustin on Flickr. (Of course, you can also see them there.) So far it looks like most of the photos are from the setup days.

Disclosure: O’Reilly AlphaTech Ventures is an investor in Chumby. And of course, MakerFaire is one of our events!
