“I was part of the team that launched MAKE: (a technology project magazine) and served as its editor-in-chief for 12 wonderful years. I just found out that has a searchable archive of all past MAKE: issues. Enjoy!”

MAKE 57 with Adafruit is in there too.

Looks like there is another community event next week as well:

The Future We Make: A Community Conversation with Dale
Make: magazine and Maker Faire
Tuesday, July 23, 2019 from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM (PDT)
San Jose, CA


  • Is Make, Maker Faire, Maker Media, and Make Magazine rebranding to “Make Community” ? – Adafruit.
  • Bankrupt Maker Faire revives, reduced to Make Community – TechCrunch.
  • Maker Media reboots itself as Make Community – Hackaday.
  • bbenchoff/Conversation-With-Dale – GitHub.
  • Bankrupt Maker Faire Revives, Reduced To Make Community – Slashdot.

As a matter of disclosure, we (Adafruit, Limor & I) did try to see if some of the assets were available for purchase. While I was at MAKE, I started the MAKE YouTube channel and MAKE Twitter account, and wanted to preserve them as they are now “forever”, but could not purchase those, so we tried to get the mailing lists etc. so they would not end up being used to spam people. I understand it’s an odd request, purchasing something to not-use it. Lastly, we worked with’s wayback machine folks to make sure the site and all it’s blog posts were saved, I had tens-of-thousands of posts on covering the maker movement, and open-source hardware for years…


To: Armanino LLP, Corporate Finance and Restructuring

We are writing to provide a letter of intent in respect of a transaction with Maker Media / Armanino LLP, Corporate Finance and Restructuring for email and/or physical addresses from or including: MakerShed, Make newsletters/lists, Make: Magazines, and other properties with email and/or physical address information. This includes and not limited to: marketing emailing lists, MakerShed email address and physical address list from customers and marketing efforts, Maker Faire names, addresses, emails, phone numbers from Maker Faire tickets sales and any other personally identifiable information.

The purchase would be for sole and express purpose of destroying the data so it could not be harvested, used for spam or marketing in any way. The complete erasure and any backups would be verified as deleted by a 3rd party data destruction specialist, paid for by Adafruit with forensic / logs for public inspection.

Thank You.
