If you've been around the PHP community for any length of time (or even at all it seems) you've probably heard of or seen something about php|architect - the magazine, their training and even their popular annual conference, php|tek. News came out yesterday that the php|architect group has been acquired by Musktreers.me (several of which happen to be well-known PHP community members).

Over the course of the last ten years, our focus has always been education-not just of our readers and customers, but also our own. We taught ourselves about publishing, organizing events, training, and dealing with people from all walks of life. Many of the things we learned were fun, and some not so much; all were very interesting. Most of all, we have learned to rely on the PHP community, which we watched grow and evolve alongside our favourite language.

[...] Thus, as the end of our first decade in business approaches and we have decided that we must move on, it's important for us to know that php|architect will remain in good hands. We are happy to announce that, effective January 1st, Musketeers.me LLC will take over the php|architect brand and all activities associated with it, including our magazine, books, training, and events.

You can find some more personal reflections from other members of the php|architect staff on their own blogs - Marco Tabini and Beth Tucker Long - and the official mention on the Musketeers.me blog.
