“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.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
