Maker Startup Weekend

Startup Weekends are cool. Makeathons are cool. Startup Weekends + Makeathon = ???

They had one out at TechShop 

I've been talking to some people in the general area that have access to some technical tools and personnell  about doing something like this.

If there was a Maker Startup Weekend, what would you like the focus to be and what would you like to get out of the weekend?

Here are some general thoughts on it:

1. Unlike a startup weekend, a prototype or even product would seems to be a pretty difficult task to make happen in such a short period of time. What should the judging critera be? I'm of the mind set that even if it is a short period of time, there are still things that can be done to put together a mockup/generation 1 version.

2. What sort of people do you try and get there? At a regualr startup weekend, a UI/UX/Designer proved to be really important and a resource that was really needed. How do you classify makers? IDEO used a skill set badge system, perhaps that could help out. 

3. You are going to have to prep a bit more than normal. While most of the startup weekends you are only allowed to put together a pitch, here it seems that you'll have to have at least a bit more of your plans configured and setup.

4. What sort of tools do you have onsite and what is the liability?
