Some exciting news: Starting tomorrow, we'll have a weekend editor writing fresh stories, actively moderating your comments, and making sure the US posts are properly polished. Lifehacker AU will be humming seven days a week! But that’s not all the news we've got to share...
The new weekend editor is none other than Logan Booker (pictured), founding editor of Kotaku Australia, and former editor of Atomic Magazine. He left Kotaku in mid-2008 to take up a game designer role at Tantalus, and in early 2011, moved to a writing role at Firemint (now owned by Electronic Arts). Please join us in welcoming Logan back to the fold!
In other news, I’ve stepped up to the role of Publisher of Lifehacker, Gizmodo and Kotaku; and Seamus has left for CNET. You may recognise my byline from Gizmodo -- I most recently edited Giz AU, previously contributed to the US edition, and worked with Jason Chen (editor of Lifehacker US). I’m honoured to be supporting Angus to make Lifehacker Australia even better.
So who’s the new Gizmodo editor? Well, we’re still on the hunt! We've had good interest, and I'm casting the net far and wide to chat with a bunch of writers and journalists. Feel free shoot me an email.
So, exciting times at Allure Media and for Lifehacker.
Great to have you along for the ride.
