Goodbye Gary; Hello Barry!

I’m sad — but also happy — to report that Gary Price is no longer serving as
Search Engine Watch’s news editor. Gary’s moving on to pastures new, and we wish
him well. Coming on board to help make up for his loss is Barry Schwartz, who is
our new news correspondent.

Gary’s departing to become the new Director of Online Information Resources at Ask Jeeves. Gary’s going to be
posting more about it on his ResourceShelf blog, and Ask Jeeves will have a
press release on it up
here. He’s also
posted a personal goodbye note to SEW readers

It’s been an honor and pleasure to have worked with Gary over the past two
years. He’s a fantastic resource of knowledge, as so many are aware of. Losing
him is that sad part, especially because aside from being a work colleague, he’s
also become a good friend. I’d have fought tooth and nail to keep him, but
Gary’s really looking for a completely new change of pace. So that’s the happy
part. He’s found something new, and we here at Search Engine Watch wish him the
very best.

Barry Schwartz will be well known to many of our readers as the hardworking
editor of Search Engine Roundtable, where he keeps watch on interesting
discussions out of various search forums. It’s a real pleasure to have him
coming aboard to do search news blogging with us. Welcome aboard, Barry!

So Long Gary Price!
