A new leader
The end of the year brings the end of a run. I have been at the helm of this ship for 27 years and it is time to surrender to new thinking, new ways of doing stuff, and new methods. To this end, I am passing on the seat to Shaun. He has been at my side for eleven years (and bailed me out a more than a few times). So — welcome him aboard. You will find Shaun easy to work with, very well informed, and highly talented.
Oh, I will still be around for a while yet, but slowing down some. Have a good new year and lets all hope that 2013 is a recovery year for all of us.
