http://www.makezine.com/ is a new project from O’Reilly (full disclosure: I wrote a book on ASP.NET for O’Reilly, so I’m not an entirely disinterested observer) that should appeal to the inner geek in all of us.
Make brings the do-it-yourself mindset to all the technology in your life. Make is loaded with exciting projects that help you make the most of your technology at home and away from home. This is a magazine that celebrates your right to tweak, hack, and bend any technology to your own will.
Coming early in 2005, Make is a hybrid magazine/book (known as a mook in Japan). Make comes from O’Reilly, the Publisher of Record for geeks and tech enthusiasts everywhere. It follows in line with the Hacks books and Hardware Hacking Projects, but it takes a highly visual and personal approach.
Some of the initial articles cover kite aerial photography, building your own video camera stabilizer, and do-it-yourself battery replacement for your iPaq. Sounds like good clean geeky fun.
