DaVinci’s Faire and BarCamp 2015! Save the DATES: Saturday, April 11 and Sunday, April 12 at the Manatee Technical College on SR 70.
A place where life-long learners of any age across technology, business, education and funding have the opportunity to interact. Where robotics teams and makers and inventors and entrepreneurs and game enthusiasts ALL share in the midst of this open space un-conference called BarCamp.
After eight “conferences” and 15 days of BarCamp, we are looking forward to our second year of BarCamp DaVinci’s Faire – a better space for the incredible talent and interests of our community to be more thoroughly represented.

GeekLabs, the research and development branch of the well-known nerdy gadget shop ThinkGeek, has announced a new idea submission forum: the IdeaFactory. In its essence, the IdeaFactory is an interesting experiment in crowdsourced R&D, where the best ideas are made and marketed with the rest of ThinkGeek’s products, plus $1,000 and 10% of retail sales are given to the submitter.
