It’s with a lot of sadness that I post this, on the final day of 2008. As has just been posted on PingMag, our dear web magazine is done, or as officially stated, placed on “extended hiatus” — the site’s archives will remain online. Yes, the closure comes as a result of this “global economic crisis” that seems to really be screwing up a lot of good things these days. And yes, this means I lose my post as editor, and as of now I’m back on the hunt for work.

Yeah, it’s a pretty shitty way to end the year, especially since I really enjoyed working there — for those four short weeks — and I certainly feel like it’s unfair that things had to happen like this.

But I’ve had time to get over it, and I’m truly looking forward to an exciting 2009. Happy New Year, everyone!
