Changes at Gizmodo

Posted By Darren Rowse 17th of July 2005 Pro Blogging News 3

Megablog – Gizmodo – is going through some changes at the moment with the leaving of editor Joel Johnson who is leaving to pursue a freelance career and plans to find a new Gizmodo team (apply via that link).

It will be interesting to see how the changes impact the blog. Joel is a great blogger who has built Gizmodo up incredibly over the past couple of years. I wonder if the new team can build on his success.

Good luck Joel – it’s been a pleasure interacting with you over the past year or so – best of luck with the new ventures. Joel will be able to be contacted through his own site here (currently down as he’s moving servers).

  1. Joel’s departure is a real bummer. He’s the gadget guy.

    On the brighter side of things, Joel has left the team on stable ground. The new redesign is looking SEXY (it should be up in a few days) and we’ve added some exciting new features that will debut shortly. Keep an eye on Gizmodo and other Gawker properties. ;)

  2. Just for the sake of accuracy: Gizmodo’s big popularity has been created and built by Peter Rojas when he was working there (before moving to WeblogsInc and before creating Engadget). Joel Johnson came to Gizmodo already when it was built.
