TWiT and Conversations
As of December 31 I will no longer be an employee of TWiT. Leo decided that he needs “an in-studio anchor for Tech News Today, and a News Director who can help us build the kind of organization you can count on for authoritative tech news and information.” +Mike Elgan
has been hired to become the lead anchor of Tech News Today and TWiT’s first official News Director. It’s a great call. Mike’s a smart guy. I congratulate him and wish him the best of luck.

I agreed, as did Leo and Lisa, not to say much more about it to try to avoid a “he said she said” situation. That’s not helpful for anyone.
To clarify a couple questions:
I found out Tuesday and agreed to keep it confidential until Thursday.
Thursday evening Leo very kindly changed his mind about Frame Rate but I politely declined.
Now for more positive news!
I spent all day Friday on the phone and while I have nothing nailed down quite yet, some good stuff is brewing.
I’m also gobsmacked by the outpouring of affection here and on Twitter and in the chat room. I cannot thank the audience enough. TNT has the smartest audience in the world and now I can say quite truthfully the most supportive too. Thank you.
I’ll be doing a Google Hangout on Monday evening to brainstorm ideas with anybody who’s interested. Look for details here and on Twitter.
Thus Kent, O princes, bids you all adieu;
He’ll shape his old course in a country new.
