O'Reilly to publish a hacking lifestyle magazine? MAR 05 2004
Even O'Reilly, the favorite book publisher of geeks everywhere, is thinking of jumping into the DIY pool. It's exploring the idea of a publication called Make that would be the anti-Cargo -- the latter tells its readers which DVD player to buy, while the proposed one would tell its own how to rip that DVD player open and hack it. As uncommercial as it sounds, the project has attracted help from some big names in tech publishing circles: former Industry Standard chief executive officer John Battelle and former Boing Boing editor Mark Frauenfelder.
