From my mail to the mod loop:
“For four long years, while all the other mods were snoring loudly in bed, the SDMB NightWatchman™ awoke half-way around the world to continue the fight against ignorance (the disease that America has been offshoring since 1973; and which now clearly is a global issue - as Ed says, “Ignorance travels faster than the speed of a headlight on a Japanese bullet train on a treadmill”. Or something to that effect)…”
It’s been a great ride, but I’m stepping aside as GQ Moderator this weekend. Not because I don’t love this gig, but because I’m going to have very little spare time over the next two years. I’ve quit my job to pursue a full-time MBA at the University of California, Irvine, starting next month. I’ll still be on the boards on and off as time permits; and if you guys are ever in a crunch I’d be more than glad to lend a hand if I can.
A special thanks to Larry and John for having held my hand in those early days. And to sam and Rico for having done most of the work. And to Jenny for her support always. And to Ed, for having shared his presence with me! And to you!
I’ll still pop in from time to time, and hope to contribute as a regular member.
Thank you all for an amazing experience!
