John Robb leaves UserLand

7th July 2003


Some news: John Robb is leaving UserLand. This is part of a bigger transition, one that we’re not ready to talk about yet. It should be, net-net, good news for Manila and Radio users, and for the weblog community. We weren’t ready to announce, John surprised us by writing about his departure on his weblog. He’s a surprising guy.

John’s weblog seems to be offline at the moment, but you can see his parting note in the Feedster cache. It seems he’s going to be dedicating some time to the Weblog Network, described here (another cached entry). Interesting stuff.
