March 1, 2014

I showed off the big Styrofoam figures milled at Metalphysic foundry, at the Tucson maker faire -- Maketopolis -- located at Xerocraft and Makerhouse:

Mayor Rothschild mentioned Xerocraft in his "State of the City" address last week, on Feb 26th:

Over the next year, you'll see close to $9 million of strategic improvements made to the Tucson Convention Center. You'll see young entrepreneurs move their businesses and dreams downtown – at CoLab or Connect Coworking. You'll see artists and crafters mixing with coders and hackers at places like Maker House and Xerocraft. You'll see ground broken on a new, modern, urban hotel. And, as people continue to move downtown, maybe – just maybe – you'll see that cornerstone of urban neighborhoods, a grocery store.
