Cogs can think.

I'm a mere, tiny, insignificant cog in a whole clockwork of stupidity.
The little cog that wanted to break free, I am.

Eugenia To Leave OSNews?

I sincerely hope she'll reconsider...

OSNews is what me got into all this, really. Eugenia made an institution out of OSNews; an authority with a very relaxed and open feel (if you ignore the trolls, that is). I wrote my first tech articles for OSNews (and dear god were those first two a load of crap), and I'm just afraid that without Eugenia OSNews will fall into oblivian, as I don't see any replacement for her on OSNews.

However, I must also be honest with this.

Expert Zone has a large overlap with OSNews. If Eugenia were to stop working for OSNews, a big window of opportunity would open up for me and Andrew. So I kinda have mixed feelings. On one hand I understand that she has had enough; not only because of the less interesting state of the industry, but also because of the way she has been treated sometimes. On the other hand, OSNews would seriously decline in size and 'up-to-dateness' leaving a void, a void eXpert Zone is more than willing to fill. And there's even a third hand. It's going to be weird not see her postings and whatever on OSNews anymore.
