"I was too busy to visit Baker Street" [STOC]
When Dr. Watson took on a new practice in the Paddington district, he wrote:
For three months after taking over the practice I was kept very closely at work and saw little of my friend Sherlock Holmes, for I was too busy to visit Baker Street, and he seldom went anywhere himself save upon professional business.
We find ourselves in a similar situation. You may have noticed that the postings to the site haven't been coming as fast and furious as they used to. Fear not! This is only a temporary matter. The truth is, we've taken a new job and took some time off in between that to spend with family and prepare for new opportunity. We hope to get back to the normal frenzied schedule of 4-6 posts a week that you've come to expect.
For those of you who are curious, we're working for a company called crayon, which is a "new marketing" company specializing in reaching consumers through the world of new media - blogs, podcasts, wikis, virtual worlds, etc. Obviously the perfect fit for someone who has been involved in the blogosphere one way or another for about 4 years.
There are a number of posts in the hopper - topics that have been swirling around in your editor's head or that you have been kind enough to volunteer. We simply ask that you be patient as we try to get up to speed. It may take a bit, but you have our word, it will be worth the wait.
