MAKE Division Spins Out from O’Reilly Media as Separate Company.

Publisher of MAKE Magazine, Producer of Maker Faire is Now Maker Media, Inc.

Sebastopol, CA, January 24, 2013—O’Reilly Media today announced that it has spun out its MAKE division, which publishes MAKE Magazine and produces Maker Faire, into an independent company called Maker Media, Inc. The new company will be headed by Dale Dougherty, who founded both MAKE Magazine and Maker Faire, and has managed the MAKE division since its inception in 2005.

The newly independent company will continue its focus on and support of the Maker Movement through its core media properties and ecommerce business.

“This is truly an exciting time for us. The transition from a division to a separate company allows us to expand the ways we connect a growing community of makers who share a mindset that they can change the world around them,” said Dale Dougherty, CEO and president of Maker Media. “Makers are eager to share projects and share their expertise with the community, and we want to become the platform to enable and nurture this spirit.”
