Sayonara Robot Magazine

From the SERVO magazine newsletter:

It has come to our attention through several sources that Maplegate Media, publishers of Robot Magazine (RM), has closed up shop. While, as subscribers ourselves, we have heard no formal announcement from Maplegate, the signs seem to point to it being true. It always saddens us to hear of the demise of any magazine and we hope there is some plan in the works to save it.

That's a shame. Carol mentioned that they were not responsive to calls & emails a while back. Print publications are struggling in this Internet age. Now, more than ever, SERVO magazine needs great content from you guys. Please consider writing articles, even on finished but interesting projects. Editor Robin is great to work with, and it's nice to earn beer & parts money for work you were gonna do anyway!
"When you make a thing, a thing that is new, it is so complicated making it that it is bound to be ugly. But those that make it after you, they don’t have to worry about making it. And they can make it pretty, and so everybody can like it when others make it after you."

    Well, while I subscribed to Robot, I always preferred SERVO.

    As far as content goes, "Serving Raspberry Pi #10" should be in the April issue, coming RSN :)

    (and as it is talking about 4WD motor calibration on a RoboPi+Pi it is Propeller oriented <smile>)

    She told her friends Robot Magazine was gone last month. You need to do something to get back on her Christmas card list.

    Ha, I missed that thread. I was too busy making robots for NYTF to read about ROBOT going belly up.
