Makezine.com Wins SXSW Web Award And Bloggie!

"...a growing movement of people eager to tinker with high-tech gadgets" --NEWSWEEK

Sebastopol, CA-- www.Makezine.com, web site for the highly acclaimed Make magazine is making headlines of its own. At the 9th annual South By Southwest Festival Web Awards, Makezine.com took home the award for “Best Educational Resource.” The next day, at the 6th annual Weblog Awards, Makezine.com took home a “bloggie” for “Best Craft Weblog.”

In less than a year, the companion site to Make magazine has become one of the top technology destinations on the web. Bringing together the Do-It-Yourself community (aka Makers), Makezine.com not only includes forums to discuss projects from Make, but also serves as a platform where these Makers can discuss and digest projects of their own. “Our team worked really hard to be relentlessly consistent in our pursuit of bringing the world of Makers to the internet --we’re thrilled that Makezine.com has become a resource for so many people,” said Phillip Torrone, Associate Editor, Make.

For the Ben Franklin in all of us, Make is devoted to fun, DIY inspiration, and discovery. Selling for $14.99 and loaded with exciting projects that help you make the most of your technology at home and away from home, Make celebrates your ability to tweak, hack, and bend any technology to your own will. The quarterly magazine (www.Makezine.com) is published by O’Reilly Media, the premier information resource for technology innovation.
