If you’ve got stories to tell about robotics, you’ve got a new place to tell them. Launched in January, Robotics World is led by none other than Keith Shaw, a longtime IDG edit vet and the former EIC of Robotics Business Review. Robotics World is published by Ontario, Canada-based Kerrwil Publications Limited — not IDG.

In May 2017, IDG laid off Keith Shaw after 21 years of service. Today he’s EIC of seven-year-old Robotics Business Review (RBR), based down the road from IDG headquarters in Framingham, Mass. RBR’s audience isn’t anywhere near IDG size — about 150,000 uniques per month — but Keith and his team cover one of the most exciting tech segments on the planet.
