Why I'm writing The Magnet

A weekly newsletter of tips, recommendations of things that interest me, things I've learned, recipes, quotations, and more.

Hi, I’m Mark Frauenfelder. I co-founded Boing Boing with my wife, Carla, and was an early editor at Wired. I’m the editor-in-chief of Cool Tools, was the founding editor-in-chief of Make, and am a research director at Institute for the Future (You can find out about me here.)

Even though I write posts on Boing Boing almost every day, this newsletter goes deeper into my personal interests. I write about tips I find useful, weird software, lists of my favorite tools, what I've learned, interviews, recipes, quotations, and more.

I’ll send an occasional free issue. If you want the full weekly newsletter, I hope you’ll subscribe. If you click the button below you can get the first year for just $25.
