In Honor of Old Friends ➝

Soon-to-be former managing editor of TUAW, Dave Caolo, on the recent decision to close the site:

After a decade with TUAW, the fun has come to an end. Our parent company is shuttering the site as part of an internal reorganization. I’ll miss lots of things about my job — like it being a job that provides a paycheck — including the people. […]

This is the second time in six years that I’ve lost a job due to the decision of a parent company. That’s like winning the lottery in hell. The FREAKING OUT will continue, mostly because my bank refuses to accept tears and/or groveling as payment on my mortgage. But I’ll figure it out.

Oh, and I’ll be writing here again. Only now I drink the cheap-ass tea.

I’m excited for Dave Caolo to be writing on 52 Tiger again and can’t wait to see what the future brings for him. I’ve been listening to his podcasts Home Work and Board Games Weekly for several months and would highly recommend them.

And, I hope he’ll be able to return to his expensive green tea with the Japanese characters on the package soon.
