Joe Wilcox is leaving eWeek's Microsoft Watch

It looks like Joe Wilcox is leaving eWeek:

Today is my last day as an eWEEK editor. In a few hours I will join the swelling ranks of journalists smitten by the economic crisis and by changes the Internet is forcing on my profession.

My ending comes on a day of new beginning for Microsoft. Windows 7 promises to be a big release for Microsoft. Today's Windows 7 Release Candidate is start of something really new.

I've been reporting about Microsoft since 1997 and specifically blogging about the company since May 2003. I took over Microsoft Watch in November 2006. It has been a joy to write this blog.

If you would like to contact me personally I am joewilcox on Twitter and joewilcox at, or

With that, there is nothing left to say but goodbye—and thank you.

Thank you Joe. You're a class act. I look forward to seeing and working with you again in the future.

Speaking of class acts, those who have been around awhile will remember that Mary Jo Foley started Microsoft Watch back in 2001. She left in 2006, Microsoft Watch was pulled into eWeek, and Mary Jo started blogging at ZDNet.
