Today is my last day writing for ZDNet.

I wanted to write a personal thank you to you, the readers, and to my co-author, Matt Miller, and of course the fine folks at ZDNet, including my editor, David Grober. ZDNet has given me a place to call home, where I could write about anything I wanted, anytime I wanted.

If you don't know my history, I founded Geek.com in 1996. I met Matt Miller in 2001 and we have been writing together ever since. When I sold Geek.com in 2007, Matt offered me a place to write at ZDNet, if I ever needed it. I took him up on his offer a couple of years later, and it has been a great ride.

If you're interested in keeping up with me, I'm at @joelgeek on twitter, and I'll be writing for my employer, Mobiquity.

Thanks again for challenging me and keeping me honest all of these years.

        if he became the new Village Idiot.

    • A few fine bloggers are leaving ZDNet currently. Coincidence?

      Or, it could be "Spring Cleaning" time. I always hated "performance review" time during my career days. Fortunately, I survived them all.

      • Sadly, it seems that a new breed of writers are being brought in

        far less fact, far more flame.

        Why be content with bloggers that bring in 30 replies on a good review or blog, when a great flame war blog gets 60 or more?

        I hope we continue to see the likes of Ed, Jason, Robin and others for quite some time.

        Good Luck in the future, Joel. I'm sure we'll see your work across the net at other places.
