American Association of Museums conference is May 23rd-26th in Los Angles, CA and the Maker Faire is May 22nd and 23rd. To be honest I have a lot more fun at the Maker Faire, there is a spirit of sharing and freedom missing from Museum conferences. If ever there is a museum topic that needs to be addressed it is a sense of freedom and sharing. I’m going to Maker Faire, then to Los Angles to meet people at the conference . As a group of professionals we need to rethink this, why don’t we give up overpriced cookies and coffee and standing around in ties and have some fun!
