/// As ATD Draws to a Close, Here Are Some Staff Highlights — Part One: Kafka, Hesseldahl, Gannes
On December 31 at the stroke of midnight, All Things Digital will be no more. Of course, the archives of what we have written since April of 2007 — close to 38,000 posts — will remain in the digital ether for your perusal ( thanks, Edward! ). And, as has been reported elsewhere, the whole staff of ATD is reportedly moving on to a new online tech and media news effort with new investors and a new name (ironic, we know, but no comment from us!). While we are not exactly sentimental types, I asked the crew to come up with a few of the stories they liked best from their tenure. I am posting them here, three ATD writers today, three tomorrow, three on Saturday and two Sunday. (Note: I have not included Katherine Boehret and Walt Mossberg , as they did roundup pieces already for this site and The Wall Street Journal.) And, on Monday and Tuesday, I will round up the really remarkable highlight videos of 11 years of D conference speakers. Without tooting the horn too much, using tools of accuracy, fairness, quality and more than a little humor, you will see via this small sampling of stories a staff that has truly distinguished itself over the nearly seven years in bringing its audience the very best in news and analysis. I have posted only a handful for each, but it should give you a glimpse into the wide range of topics the ATD reporters have covered over the years.
