          Stepping down from your editorial role? Then who is taking over? Or will Phoronix.com die?

            Phoronix.com wouldn't die... There's been on and off talks about a few possibilities.

              Rumor has it that Qaridarium is taking over the role.

                Maybe you could make it Slashdot-style and have a few selected editors who are known to be good at what they do? And when you have some time to yourself you can also chip in an article every now and then

                Can understand your need to focus more on the business-targeted performance testing solutions, and while I hope that's successful, Phoronix often runs articles that you can't find anywhere else; would hate to see it fall by the wayside.

                  The focus and format would remain unchanged.

                  It's just tiresome working so much now for the past 6.5 years on Phoronix... I'd like to stop working quite so much. And yes, the testing software side has its advantages and new opportunities. Without me in an editorial role it would also avoid any conflicts of interest that may arise down the line from the testing software side. And some of the proposals received thus far would leave the Phoronix.com content in hands of a good team to continue growing much faster and at a rate than what's physically possible by just one person / me.

                      Get your users/readers busy and fill it with (not too much) adds. As the quality improves so does your reader base. Get key people on open benchmarking and have them reporting their own news to everyone (feature xyz added) and pay the key people for worthwhile blog posts with a portion of the ad revenue.

                      Meanwhile you can enjoy a nice vacation and then a job or something. You have enough experience!

                      Best of luck!

                              "After a seven-year tenure, in 2011 it's also quite likely I will be stepping down from my editorial role at Phoronix.com."

                              A word of warning, Tom of www.tomshardware.com stepped down after a few years. It wasn't good for the site at the time. It took them several years to regain confidence.

                              Still, good luck! But I wish you wouldn't leave.
