"Not quite the Omnibus you might have hoped for... "

... but you're still making the 2016 omnibus too, right??

This year we'll be releasing: (at the 2017 Supercon). Not the exact same format as the Omnibus, but perhaps more fun!

I was really looking forward to having a collection of hackaday print material.  If you don't produce Omnibus 0x3 that makes the first two much less meaningful in my opinion.  It is a major disappointment to see the format abandoned after only two editions.  

I still want to buy whatever you end up printing this year but it isn't clear how or if I will be able to purchase Unformatted.  

Please, please print an Omnibus 0x3.

Probably not this year, but we're happy to send you a copy of "Unformatted" which is its spiritual ancestor. Just send me your address on PM.

Btw regarding the Omnibus - there wasn't as much interest for it as we hoped for, and for print, you need decent volume to get print shops to offer a reasonable price. And then you end up with a ton of excess inventory in a warehouse somewhere that you need to "move." Altogether, not an exciting problem to have, especially since this is a passion project, not a for-profit thing. So we have decided to freeze this for now and take the best parts of it - Joe's art, the spirit of Hackaday you can put on your coffee table, desire to do create something slightly countercultural, and channel it into another vehicle - Unformatted, which will be more of a zine and won't be for sale. We will be running a limited edition of 500 on our own dime and handing it out to the people that should have it ( / super con crowd etc.) 

At the same time, we're channeling our desire to having our community create more original work into our (open access/peer reviewed) "research journal" - , which will be available in pdf for free and will have a print edition that will be handed out to Supercon participants. 

So as you see, the spirit of the Omnibus lives on ;)

Yes! Delayed a bit, but we're still coming out with the 2016 edition.

one of my favorite pieces of art is the cover on the first edition of the Omnibus. It always draws extra attention from others as well. Got any big plans for the cover of volume 3? I'm really hoping for the kind of complex, colorful imagery of the original. Very excited for this to come out, will be ordering as soon as the link is live. Awesome publication. :D
