GeekDad’s Ken Denmead – now Editorial Director of Make

Cropped-Logo-Geekdad

A Big Congratulations to GeekDad’s Ken Denmead! @ GeekDad.

Ken has accepted a position as the Editorial Director of Make.

If you’re not familiar with Make, here’s a quick summary. Make is a magazine (both print and digital). It’s also a blog – makezine.com. It has a retail arm — MakerShed. And it also just happens to be the host of an event that bills itself as The Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth. And if you’ve never attended a Maker Faire, you’ll just have to take my word for it that it’s two days you’ll never forget.
And Ken is now a part of that family.

So, what does this mean for GeekDad? Well, it does mean a change in leadership. Ken will be stepping down as Editor-in-Chief, and taking charge will be Matt Blum. The writing staff at GeekDad isn’t worried, and while we’re all congratulating Ken, we’re also congratulating Matt. As I told Ken in an email, he’s now involved with two of my most favorite resources.
