This is not an easy monthly topic introduction to write, but as it will be the last one anyone will write I will savor it as much as I can.
At the end of the month of December 2018: DesigningSound.org will be no longer updating with new content. The site will stay up; the links *should* still work, and all past content will still be accessible. Shaun Farley and myself have been running this site for the better part of 8 years, having taken it over for Miguel Isaza. Shaun and I have both independently then collectively come to the conclusions we can no longer keep running the site and all of its numerous responsibilities. We each have our own responsibilities to attend to and stewardship of this site is not the same priority it once was. We were also unsuccessful in finding a group of people to take over in our stead, and rather than risk the future and past reputation of the site on unknown factors we are opting to lock down the site and let it exist as the industry resource it always has been. This site isn’t going anywhere, its just going quiet until when we can find the right people to hand it over to.
So with this final monthly topic for now of “hibernation” we shall be tying up loose ends, posting finished articles, saying goodbye, and otherwise fattening up the site for the long slumber ahead.
We at DesigningSound.org thank all past contributing editors, contributing professionals, readers, critics, and everyone in between. It has been a pleasure and honor to be a part of this weird, positive, non-profit, community-engaging resource that has helped out many professionals processes and careers.
