With the passing of 2012 – and all of us survivors still recovering from our obsidian knife wounds from December 21 – I wanted to take a moment and thank you all for the unbelievable patience and support that you’ve shown me here.
I’ve been a fan of the Disinformation Company for many years, and coming to work here has been both a dream come true and a huge responsibility. Preserving the Disinfo legacy while preparing for its future is a balancing act, and one that I cannot do without you. The community here has shown incredible grace and good humor as I work to find a good mix of controversial, entertaining and just plain odd content. You’ve been forgiving of my missteps and experiments (may we all remember with a mix of fear and amusement the last weeks of 2012 as The Era of the Midnight Video Onslaught), and in short, you’ve made me feel at home while I’ve learned the ropes.
I would be lying if I told you that there won’t be further missteps in the future, but I hope that there will also be times of wonder, bewilderment and illumination ahead. I want to do my very best to entertain you and make your visits here worthwhile. I’ve gotten to know many of you as friends – and a few as valuable noble adversaries – and with this in mind, I hope to repay your confidence in spades.
My “door” is always open, and I’m always eager to hear from you with story ideas and other matters of importance. I’d also be delighted if any of you are interested in contributing content to the site. Feel free to email me any time you like at matt AT disinfo DOT com.
Once again, thank you very much for the kindness and patience you’ve continued to show “the new guy”.
