History

Hackaday was founded in 2004 by Phillip Torrone as a web magazine for Engadget, devoted to publishing and archiving "the best hacks, mods and DIY projects from around web".[2] Hackaday was since split from Engadget and its former parent company Weblogs, Inc. by its at the time owner Jason Calacanis.[7][8] In 2007 Computerworld magazine ranked Hackaday #10 on their list of the top 15 geek blog sites.[9]

Hackaday.io started as a project hosting site in 2014 under the name of Hackaday Projects.[10][11][12] It allows users to upload open-source hardware designs.[6] As of 2015, it had grown into a social network of 100,000 members.[13]

In 2015, Hackaday's owner, Supplyframe, acquired the hardware marketplace Tindie.[14]

In 2021, Hackaday's owner, Supplyframe, was acquired by Siemens.[15]
