“As many of you probably saw on the stories a few weeks ago, Maker Media ceased operations. Our founder Dale Dougherty and a small team of us have joined together to rebuild in service of the community with a new company called, appropriately, Make Community. You can read Dale’s announcement to see what the future of the company holds; much of that is in your hands as we need your support to get this new endeavor airborne. Please sign up for your Make: Community membership to help us keep this whole thing going!
You’re probably wondering about the magazine and blog, right? To speak to some of that, here are some thoughts from Executive Editor Mike Senese and Senior Editor Caleb Kraft…
I have a Make Magazine subscription and a Make: Membership (2 years), so I emailed and asked will they transfer, here is what Make.co told me: If you had a paid membership and paid subscription like I did, Make.co has let me know that the mastery level membership transfers over, and while the magazine subscriptions are handled by a different system, it will also carry over.
We’re back! Come see what’s going on at Make: Community – Twitter.
UPDATE – MAKE magazine is not on archive.org - Adafruit.
Bankrupt Maker Faire Revives, Reduced To Make Community – Slashdot.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
