It's the end of an era as Kombo.com is shutting down at the end of the month. I've been with the company since 2004 and worked my way up to Assistant Director of Reviews earlier this year, so I'm sad to see it go, but ultimately things just weren't working out. Long story short, a proposed new editorial direction and revised compensation plan did not go over well with the senior staff, leading all of us to resign, and it's very difficult to run a company without management, so the owner decided to close the doors. I've had some fantastic times at Kombo, met a lot of wonderful people, befriended some of the best writers in the business, and covered a lot of memorable events, and while I will miss it, rest assured that I am not going anywhere. Press The Buttons goes on, of course, and you just might see me pop up here and there elsewhere in the industry as time goes on. Thanks to everyone at Kombo for a fantastic six and a half years, and last one out please turn the lights off when you leave.
