Is Make, Maker Faire, Maker Media, and Make Magazine rebranding to “Make Community” ? @make

There might be an announcement this week from Maker Media founder and CEO Dale Dougherty that it’s relaunching, from a few sources:

Maker Media suddenly laid off all 22 employees and shut down last month, as first reported by TechCrunch. Now its founder and CEO Dale Dougherty tells me he’s bought back the brands, domains and content from creditors and with his own money rehired 15 of 22 laid off staffers. Next week, he’ll announce the relaunch of the company with the new name “Make Community.”

make.co the domain and site have been around for a couple years, the about section was recently updated.

I’ve been a make.co member for 2 years, so I’m interested what this means for my membership, what happens next, etc. The latest charge (auto-renewal) was June 28th, 2019.

Hackaday’s Brian Benchoff has a GitHub repo with the transcript from the community meet up.
