Back in tech-publishing...

Guess who the new co-editor over at OLPCnews is? Yes, that would be me. :-)

I am honoured to be able to take over the site from the one and only Wayan Vota who built this prime OLPC community over the past 2 years. Over the course of this week the transition from Wayan to the new editorial team consisting of me and Bryan Berry from OLE Nepal will be made. Earlier today Wayan posted this comment which was followed by a joint statement from Bryan and myself where we give a brief overview of our plans for the near future. I'm very much looking forward to taking OLPCnews into the "post-1CC" era, highlighting all the great things that are happening in OLPC communities around the world and I'm sure it will be a great experience.

On a more personal note, I find it interesting that after being the assistant manager (yes, I choose that title myself) over on EPIACENTER.com for the better part of the past 5 years I only managed to stay away from tech-publications for a couple of months. As previously mentioned there's something about writing articles and comments on technology related subjects that I really enjoy. Looking ahead to the coming weeks and months until university starts again on October, 1st I'll be spending most of my waking hours writing one thing or another:
  • two feature articles for work
  • OLPCnews
  • additions to the OLPC Activity Handbook
  • updating this blog
These tasks should certainly keep me busy for awhile. Not that I was ever afraid of being bored! :-D
