The world is small! Lets backup a bit, it’s August and I’m at Gnomedex in Seattle watching Bre Pettis present a killer movie of his maker bot making egg salt and pepper shakers and a figure head of Darth Vader. Bre lives in NYC and the girls that were making the eggs are Loz and Kegan of Design Glut. I thought the video was cool and the Maker Bot rocked. Then Gnomedex ended. Now it’s mid September, Marc and I bought a jetBlue all you can jet pass and are hitting 10 cities in 30 days.
I emailed a few people on Couch Surfing that live in NYC for a place to stay while in town. Liz got back to me and offered her place. After making my way over to Liz’s place in Brooklyn I still had no idea who she was. Then I saw the egg on her table and it dawned on me, you’re the girl from the Maker Bot video! It was a really strange small world experience, maybe you had to be there 😉
Liz and Kegan are really talented and cool people! Take a look at Design Glut. In their spare time, they also interview entrepreneurs and post blogs on their page! Here is what they posted after an intense interview! Startup Weekend Interview
