The time has come to say goodbye, Disinfonauts. Some of you may have heard already, but for those who have not, I’ve stepped down from my position at the company. I’ve enjoyed serving as your web content editor (and one-time podcaster) over the past couple of years, but it’s time I move on and let someone else take their turn at the wheel.
Allow me to introduce you to Marcie Gainer, your new web content editor as of Monday morning. I suspect tomorrow is going to be an extremely busy day for Marcie, as that will also be her first day as TDC Entertainment’s new sales and marketing manager. (TDC, if you’re wondering, is the parent company that owns disinfo.com.) Marcie is a huge movie buff, and is particularly fond of documentaries. In addition to her work here at Disinfo/TDC, Marcie runs her own film review site, thecinematika.com.
Marcie is very familiar with the site and has a good nose for news. I think you’re going to be quite happy with her work as site editor, and I hope that you’ll support her as she settles in and gets to know you all.
So what about me? Where I am I going? Hmmm… Good question. I don’t have any specific plans. I’m hoping to get back into podcasting again, and to do a lot more freelance writing. There may be some other surprises down the road, as well. (There always are, aren’t they?)
If you want to keep up with me, you can always follow me on Twitter (@mattstaggs). I’m also rebooting my old homepage www.mattstaggs.com. There’s not much there now, but bookmark it and check back now and again. I’m going to be uploading some writing, hosting my podcast there, and doing some other fun stuff. You can also email me if you want. I won’t publish that here, but believe me, my email address isn’t hard to find at all.
I might be back here now and again as a commenter and contributor. You never can tell.
Thanks for giving me a chance here. I’ve had a lovely time and I’ve made a lot of good friends. I hope that we’ll stay in touch.
Please be good to Marcie. You know what first day jitters are like.
