The end of an era, sort of

Well kids, we knew this day would come.  As I’m sure you’ve noticed, the posts have been few and far between over the last year or so, largely as work got in the way. I clung to the hope that I would find the motivation and time to post regularly again but it never materialized.

And now, I’m moving on to a new job and it’s time to formally retire from Megalomedia.

As of February 12, I will be the new communications officer for the Canadian Boreal Initiative and given that I would certainly rail against any PR flack commenting on media coverage as an objective pundit, I can’t really justify carrying this blog on while actively working in public/media relations.

And with the bloggal retirement, I think I can finally put the last nail in the coffin of the fledgling Society. I still think it’s a worthy cause (and one I hope to pick up again one day) but it’s just not happening right now. Thanks to everyone who supported me and kept on my case about getting off the ground; it wasn’t for lack of supporters that the initiative flopped.

The site will stay active for awhile, hopefully Dekes, JK and the KOB can find something to post about.  But I won’t be posting after today.

To steal from the poignant parting words of the now-former Managing Editor of Maisonneuve Magazine (and creator of MediaScout) Phil Todd, so long and thanks for all the fish.

  1. So Long, And Thanks For All The Fish was the 4th book in the Hitchikers Guide To The Galaxy, which was named for the parting message the dolphins left before leaving earth.
