On moving on

My Lucky Cat

Today I’m sad to announce that I’m leaving Computeractive – a great magazine that’s brilliantly focused on the needs of its readers, produced by a fantastic team with whom I’ve enjoyed working immensely. However, I’m also excited to announce my new role as CTO* at the brand-new Apptitude Media.

Apptitude is a new company that we’ve created following a management buyout of the British Journal of Photography, Popular Science UK, and the team that I’ve been working on for almost two years, producing digital magazines for the iPad and iPhone. We will continue to publish both magazines, while expanding to build on our work helping other publishers – such as 125 Magazine – make the leap from print onto touchscreen devices.

More details are in our press release, here.

If you’re a reader of one of our titles, rest assured that publication will continue without interruption. If you write for me, and I’ve been unable to warn you in advance – apologies – it’s business as usual and I’ll be in touch to talk commissions soon. And if you know me, and I’ve been slightly distant or evasive when discussing work in the last few months, then apologies: I’ve been unable to talk about any of this stuff until today – lawyers, etc. Sorry.

So, that’s my exciting news for the day: new company, new start. Watch this space.
