The time has come for me to say goodbye to Danny, Chris, and the rest of the SEW team.
The good news is that I will not be going very far and what have become known to many of you as "Gary's other sites" (ResourceShelf and DocuTicker) will still be online and updated daily. A personal invitation not only to visit but to keep in touch.
So, where am I going? In the VERY near future (after some times to get things in order and a bit of r&r) I will be joining Ask Jeeves, as Director of Online Information Resources. More about that over here and here.
The most difficult part of this decision to leave the SEW is the chance to work alongside Danny Sullivan and Chris Sherman on a daily basis. Both of these men have reputations for being great guys. However, unless you work with them each and every day, you have just a small idea of just how wonderful they are to work with and to be friends with. While I'm leaving my daily work on the SEW Blog, I'm very happy that SEW colleagues will continue to be great friends. I look forward to working with them in my new role at Ask Jeeves.
Last but certainly not least, I would like to thank all of you, the SEW Blog readers, for your many kind words and never-ending support. Remember, I'm not going very far and I look forward to hearing from you in my new position. Said another way, you all now have a new friend at Ask Jeeves. While most of the following people and avid SEW Blog readers were friends before I joined SEW (in other words they new of my work for ResourceShelf) a few extra special thank you's to RustyBrick, Battelle, Om, Philipp Lenssen, Beal, Scoble, Zawodny, Rubel, Nathan Weinberg, Greg Linden, Michael Fagan, Loren Baker, Garrett, Nacho, Tara C., P&S at Pandia, and Daron and Brandy at WebmasterRadio.FM.
Again, I'm not going very far (in fact I'm still going to be based here in DC), just taking on some new responsibilities. I look forward to chatting you as much in the future as I have in the past. I also hope that you find a place in your aggregagtor for ResourceShelf. Btw, a full text feed is available.
So, that's all folks. I'll see some of you at SES and on ResourceShelf and DocuTicker.com. Since my regular inbox is overflowing with "stuff" these days, you can also reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
cheers and thanks,
