I was just notified that I’m having a mini-review that I wrote published in MAKE, the new magazine/book from O’Reilly. Mark Frauenfelder posted a call for reviews on BoingBoing, so I thought what the hell? Sat down, whipped up a couple hundred words on something, and got word from him yesterday that they were going to run it. What’s the product? Pick up issue two of the “mook” and find out. 🙂
After thinking about it last night, after all the book reviews I’ve written, the academic papers, the random poems that got published during my undergrad days…this is the first piece of writing I’ve gotten paid for. That makes me smile a lot.
