O’Reilly Launches MAKE Magazine for Tech Do-It-Yourselfers

Magazine and Companion Web Site (makezine.com) Reveal How to Make Practical, Fun, and Wildly Creative Projects

“To be thrown upon one’s own resources, is to be cast into the very lap of fortune.”
–Benjamin Franklin

Sebastopol, CA–The urge to make things is primal and unstoppable. In service of that universal urge, humans grab the tools and materials at hand–while a previous generation picked up a saw and bullnose rabbet plane, today’s makers are likely to reach for a soldering iron and Cat 5 cable. MAKE, a new magazine from O’Reilly Media, celebrates and inspires those who are driven to make cool and unusual things with technology, for the pure fun of it.

The premiere issue of MAKE features 192 pages of do-it-yourself projects, including illustrated step-by-step instructions on how to:

-make a $10,000 Steadicam for the price of a movie ticket and popcorn
-build a single network cable that can replace the five most commonly used cables
-fashion a magstripe reader and find out what hidden information is being stored on your credit card’s magnetic stripe

Available today on Amazon.com and at makezine.com–and at newsstands and bookstores nationwide in mid-March–MAKE is published quarterly. Single copies are $14.99 and a yearly subscription is $34.95.

“Today’s tinkerers set out to make technology work for them, and they enjoy the process as much as the result,” said MAKE publisher Dale Dougherty. “They’ll spend hours in the garage on a project, and come away with something practical or just plain fun to share with their friends and family. MAKE is the first magazine for this new breed of do-it-yourselfers.”

The MAKE editorial staff is led by Editor-in-Chief Mark Frauenfelder, who has written for publications including “The New York Times,” “LA Weekly,” and “Wired.” Frauenfelder is also author and illustrator of three books: “The Happy Mutant Handbook,” “Mad Professor,” and “The World’s Worst…”

Associate Editor Phil Torrone, a well-known hacker who writes regularly for “Popular Science” and Engadget, is producing the magazine’s companion web site, makezine.com. Torrone is contributing a blog, podcast interviews with notable makers, and projects in addition to those in the print magazine. The site is built to serve the maker community, with forums and a section where people can post their own projects, complete with instructions, advice, and photographs.
