The Maker Faire is pretty cool. People showing off their talents at making interesting stuff. Bonus points for setting stuff on fire or creating lightning bolts from Tesla Coils. 🙂
Just when you thought SXSW had served up all of its insanity, along comes a performance company from Ireland. Macnas describes themselves as a team that is “bringing stunning large-scale images and brilliant chaos to the streets of the world.” They paraded down Sixth Street for SXSW and pretty much set the place on fire. These photos will give you an idea of their brand of chaos, but please go and see them in person if you ever have the opportunity.
It is a nice cool evening in Austin tonight. I am relaxing on the patio of Whole Foods in the Domain, staying warm by the fire, and enjoying a pint of the Community Witbier. A very cool evening indeed.
