Web 2.0: O’Reilly announcements
: Dale Dougherty of O’Reilly, who edited the hack books, shows Safari U’s service to allow professors to “hack textbooks.”
And he shows O’Reilly’s first magazine, Make, for “do it yourself technology projects” — “Martha Stewart for geeks.” He looked at Popular Mechanics back in the ’50s and “it felt a lot like hacking.” Mark Frauenfelder of Boing Boing is the editor in chief. One example story: kite aerial photography.
They’re including a web element, of course, to have people record their own projects and comment on the magazine’s in a blog/wiki format.
Make looks most cool.
