I am going to attend a very interesting-looking event, - Observe Hack Make 2013 in Amsterdam July 31 - Aug 4! It is a convention/campout for folks in the Maker/Hacker community from around the world. The site says:
The target audience includes free-thinkers, philosophers, activists, geeks, scientists, artists, creative minds and a whole bunch of people interested in lots of interesting stuff.
Sounds about right! I have submitted a proposal to present a talk on Innovation 5 - we might get some global exposure and great advice!
