A New Chapter

Today I part ways with the blog I founded back in April 2003, ReadWriteWeb. It has been an amazing journey and I am confident ReadWriteWeb will continue to explore what’s next in technology with the thoughtful analysis you have all come to expect. I wish SAY Media and the RWW team all the best as they continue growing the blog that has been an integral part of my life for the past 10 years.

As for me, I’m about to begin the next chapter of my career. I’m a writer and have been from day one of ReadWriteWeb. That’s why I started the blog and, 10 years later, it’s still what I enjoy doing the most. So I’m about to take the next logical step as a writer, which is to author a book. Writing a book and getting it published has been a dream of mine for a long time. Now is my opportunity to make it happen.

I’ll be announcing the subject of my book soon, after I’ve had a bit of a break from the blogging world. What I can tell you now is that the book will be literary nonfiction and focused on the things I’ve always been very passionate about: technology and the people who use and benefit from that technology.

I’ll continue to be active on social media. You can find daily updates from me on my Facebook page (click the ‘Subscribe’ button to put me in your news feed), Twitter and Google+. I’ll also post from time to time on my personal WordPress blog, RicMac (you can follow me there via email or RSS).

It’s an exciting time for both RWW and myself. Stay tuned :)
