Well, the day has finally come. Yes, there’s been a big build up, but it’s ending with a whimper. I’m here at the subleased office by myself, packing up the last of my stuff (including the famous goose). When I finally shuffle out the door and turn off the lights, it’ll be goodbye to ClickZ after nearly 5 years. And goodbye to daily news reporting about interactive advertising, which I started doing in 1999. (Well, I’ll be blogging, but, still…)
Instead of getting all sentimental, I’ll just keep it short and sweet. In my years at ClickZ I’ve had the opportunity to work with some of the most hard working, talented journalists and columnists (not to mention all-around good people) I’ve ever met. (See their blog here.) It’s been a great experience to be associated with such a strong brand, and such an influential publication, through the years when the interactive advertising industry has seen so much innovation. There were ups, downs, and, now, the resurgence. I’ll miss them, but I’m sure ClickZ, and the team, will be just fine without me. Goodbye!
P.S. I don’t expect this blog to continue the way it’s been going the past few days (with lots of personal and FM-promotional stuff). So, if it’s not to your taste (and even if it is), stick around.
