All good things must come to an end, and today we say good-bye to Sync.
Readers, I have some very sad news.
After 5 and half years of bringing you the latest in tech news, reviews, opinions and gossip, Sync is shutting down.
Sympatico.ca, our parent site, is transitioning today into an all-new destination called The Loop. Science and tech content will be distributed among the main channels: News, Opinion, Showbiz, Style, Living, Health, Video and Autos. So while science and tech coverage will continue, Sync as a stand-alone brand, will not.
We’ve had a great run, and before we sign off, let me leave you with some stats:
comments left by readers
comments left by our most prodigious commenter, Phil. Way to go, Phil!
awards we won for our work here at Sync.
Not bad for half-a-decade’s worth of publishing.
Of course, none of this would have been possible without the contributions of some fantastic talent. I know you’ll join me in thanking the following people for their hard work in making Sync a tech site worth following:
- Marc Saltzman
- Rhonda Callow
- Andrew Kameka
- Jeremy Phan
- Phil Tucker
- Lee Mathews
- Bruno Marsala
- Murray Hill
- Peter Wolchak
- Robert Nelson
- Rey Matsuda-Levenstein
Finally, I’d like to thank you – all of you. It has been an enormous privilege being the editor of Sync. Scouring the internet looking for the most interesting issues, announcements, rumours etc., and figuring out which ones might be worth your time has been a highlight of my career so far, and by coming back to Sync day after day, you made that possible. Thank you.
We’re going to leave Sync up for as long as we can, so you can finish any conversations you were having, but as of today, there will be no new articles.
I strongly encourage you to check out The Loop. It’s a bold new direction for Sympatico.ca and dare I say it, a unique destination in the online Canadian landscape. In addition to our ongoing tech coverage, I will be taking the helm of the Consumer Blog and Opinion section, something which most of my colleagues think is an ideal fit if only for the fact that I seem to have a bit of a reputation for having one. Or two.
So, in the words of the immortal Douglas Adams, so long, and thanks for all the fish.
