A fond adieu

Late this week I’d come to the conclusion that some of my RSS-related activities would soon encroach on other, non-negotiable commitments. It was time to simplify. Among the negotiable commitments, I’m a little sad to say, was the RSS advisory board. While Dave’s announcement gave me pause, the factors informing my decision remain constant. Therefore, I am hereby resigning from the RSS advisory board.
In addition, I will no longer be able to provide support for the rss.scripting.com validator. I believe the validator serves an important purpose and provides unique, useful functionalities, such the daily validation service, that are not available elsewhere. I hope Dave will continue to improve on this great service.
I believe that RSS is in strong hands, and that this period of flux will provide a unique opportunity to bring RSS to the next level. I am grateful to Dave and the community for giving me these opportunities to serve, and especially to Dave for his friendship.
Over time and as time permits, I will continue to write tech notes and build applications right here on this weblog. Now I’m going to take a deep breath, go out and enjoy the rest of the beautiful sunny Sunday, and get ready for the busy week ahead. Thank you, everyone.

  2. Andrew,

    That was beautifully said and you are now (and always will be) a first class guy. You nicely gave back to the community in a visible, technically accurate, respectful way. You’ve done good my friend.

    Kudos on all levels.
