Subscribe to Make Magazine for 40% off

Subscriptions to O’Reilly’s new book-length magazine, Make—which features a regular “Life Hacks” column by Danny and me—are now available via Amazon for $35/year, about 40% off the news stand price. (Fine print: subscriptions via Amazon start with Issue #2. See update, below)

Make features all kinds of cool, techy home projects for nerds, and is receiving great notices.

Update 2005-02-16T22:01

Please note that subscriptions ordered through Amazon will commence with Issue #2 (June, 2005). However, Issue #1 can now be ordered as an individual book exclusively from Amazon until March 16th. Thereafter, Make also will be available at finer book stores and news stands everywhere.

In the mean time, if you want your Make subscription to start with issue #1, you can still subscribe through the nice folks at O’Reilly for the same discounted price.

Many thanks to Sean H. for asking the question about this; I’m so glad we caught this early, and I do apologize for any mixup or inconvenience.

About Merlin

Merlin's picture


Merlin Mann is an independent writer, speaker, and broadcaster. He’s best known for being the guy who created the website you’re reading right now. He lives in San Francisco, does lots of public speaking, and helps make cool things like You Look Nice Today, Back to Work, and Kung Fu Grippe. Also? He’s writing this book, he lives with this face, he suffers from this hair, he answers these questions, and he’s had this life. So far.

Merlin’s favorite thing he’s written in the past few years is an essay entitled, “Cranking.”

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

Scared Shitless

Merlin’s scared. You’re scared. Everybody is scared.

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
