So long, fellow travelers

So long, fellow travelers

Summary: Seven years writing at ZDNet, and all I got was this stupid T-Shirt.


Effective immediately, I will no longer be writing for ZDNet.

Since my first article here in February 2006, I've tried to bring you a unique perspective on software development and the computer industry. Even if you didn't agree with me, I hope you found my articles to be helpful and thought provoking. It's been a privilege working with all the professionals here at ZDNet, and I'm content in the sure knowledge that I leave you in their capable hands.

I'd like to invite you all to follow my future exploits through twitter (@eburnette) and Google +.

Thanks for your support,

    I cannot say that I blame you, staying too Long here could be bad for your career.
  • T-shirt?

    How can a "summary" be about a t-shirt, even though it is not mentioned in the main text???
    • ...

      You're kidding, right?

      Anyway, good luck to you. Mass exodus of ZDnet writers?
      • T-shirt?

        Sorry, but I don't get the stuff about the T-shirt. I even Googled about it...
        • The "T-shirt joke" is an old one...

          goes back some 15 or 20 years, there was a fad at various public performances
          where vendors offered t-shirts with the saying "I went to 'insert performance'
          and all I got was this t-shirt" emblazoned on it.
  • Sorry to see you go

    You wrote thoughtful articles, and did not write in the fact avoiding and skewed fashion like Ed Bott often does. You were worth reading.
