Dale Dougherty had a hunch he was onto something when he launched MAKE Magazine, but he had no idea what a responsive chord he’d be striking.

Maker Media also produces a digital edition, and has posted many how-to videos online. And CEO Dale Dougherty says they are also branching out into another once-popular area of merchandising.
