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."
- Pablo Picasso
