MAKE announces changes, plans and more for 2016 – Adds CMO / CCO …. Message from Greg, the MAKE CEO –

The Maker Movement today is no longer a nascent, unorganized collection of people working separately on projects. Rather, it’s an ever-widening global circle of creators, eager to share and swap and support one another as we face the challenges of the day in a way that allows us to Do It Together. What innovations will Makers prompt in 2016? What science breakthroughs, health hacks, innovative products, and new ways of addressing old concerns will emerge? None of us can exactly say. We can only be there, as a community supporting one another, doing it together.

…we are thrilled to welcome two new ones who we are certain will jut our trajectory higher: former National Geographic executive Amy Maniatis as our new Chief Marketing Officer and former Federated Media content guru Deanna Brown as our new Chief Content Officer.

Our take – there is a lot of opportunity to celebrate makers, to tell their stories and show the diversity of the people, projects and efforts in the maker communities, it’s up to MAKE to decide if that’s important to them and how they’ll tell those stories. The MAKE post goes on to say print magazine is down 50% and that young folks turn to YouTube for learning, MAKE just passed 1m subscribers on YouTube and 231m views, there’s a lot of potential.
