It's been a fantastic ride, but today is my last day as Gawker's editor-in-chief. Taking over the reins is A.J. Daulerio of Deadspin. Please make him feel welcome.

My deepest thanks to the insanely talented team I've had the pleasure of working with these past 18 months and to you, dear readers, for skimming the site during your lunch breaks and complaining endlessly in the comments. Keep in touch, y'all! It's been a blast.
