We've created this group to help Philly-area Makers find each other, share skills, collaborate on projects, and find resources. We consider "Making" to be anything that includes shaping physical material for creative expression, invention, problem-solving, or profit - but which involves technology at some stage.  We love projects that explore the interplay of art and technology. For instance using software to design hand-made goods, putting electronics into clothing or sculpture are more in keeping with the focus of the group than are pure traditional hand-craft or art (though these are welcome too).  Of course we also enjoy hearing about and working on projects that involve technology in EVERY stage!

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
