As of today, I have to say goodbye to ZDNet.
After just over two years of writing this blog, I'm sad to say this is my last post here on the Social Web. I've been 'let go' as they say. Or perhaps more accurately, this blog is no more, making way for others*
It's been an honor to write for ZDNet and, most of all, you my loyal and thoughtful readers.
I'm also thankful for the kind support and interesting conversations that have come from outside of ZDNet within the blogosphere and tech community as a whole. In addition, I want to thank Dan Farber for giving me my ZDNet break in the first place (after a very thorough virtual interview process) and my editor Larry Dignan whose hands-off but equally supportive approach has been most welcome.
And whilst it's goodbye here, it's certainly not goodbye to writing about technology or my interest in the social web.
Right now you can find me writing daily over at last100.com, a blog that covers the Digital Lifestyle (Internet TV, Mobile, Digital Music and more) that I co-founded with ReadWriteWeb's Richard MacManus.
You can also follow me on Twitter.
Or look out for future announcements at my personal (and rarely updated) homepage.
My LinkedIn page is here and I welcome offers of work or any other interesting opportunities.
Take care and thanks again for reading!
P.S. On the bright side, at least I don't need to write about Facebook anymore. Until the next gig that is ;-)
P.P.S. If you want to keep up with all things social web here on ZDNet, then I recommend Jennifer Leggio's Feeds blog.
* A blog network is a bit like a record label. A number of acts are signed, some of which go on to be hits, while others fare less well. After a while those acts that don't hit the big time leave the label to make room for new talent and the process starts over. That's the reality of the business end of blogging.
