Fare Thee Well, Readers

It's been an amazing few months here at Gizmodo, but if I recall correctly there's some cliché that goes something like "all that cool stuff you've been doing, you will eventually stop doing." I've got a new gig I'm starting up this week, and unfortunately that means I won't be writing for the site anymore.

There were so many "wow this is cool" moments during my time here that I can't even begin to count them. I mean, how can you not love a job that involves "playing" a laser synth guitar and writing about some guy hacking a cheeseburger?

One moment in particular summarizes just how incredible this job has been. I was working in the Gawker office during my first week and at one point was watching a Youtube video. But I kept getting paranoid whenever someone walked behind me. I was new, and I didn't want anyone to think I was slacking off. So every time it happened I would quickly hide the browser window. But then I had a startling realization: It was my job to be watching that video.


That was just one of the many awesome moments I had during my time here. Hopefully I was able to share some of that awesomeness with you readers. Thank you all for following along.

As much fun as it's been though, my old gadgets and I are riding off into the sunset. But before I go, let me give an especially big thanks to everyone in the welcoming and helpful Gizmodo family. I can't thank you all enough for everything you've taught me.

It's been a blast everyone. I'll see you around in the comments,
