Thanks for the gadgets

It's been a great ride and now I must say goodbye.

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.
