Dave emailed me to tell me last night, and I've been waiting for him to go public with the news - and he just did.
Dave Zatz, of zatznotfunny
, is joining Sling Media, the folks behind the Slingbox. He'll be an official presence on the Sling Community Forum
as well as the primary point-of-contact for bloggers looking for info on Sling. And, as he says: As a blogger, I’m also hopeful you’ll see me heading up something, somewhere, at some point.
In other words, I think we'll be seeing an corporate blog out of Sling. Which will hopefully be more active than the moribund TiVo Corporate Blog
. (Really, TiVo, just take it down if it is never going to update.)ZatzNotFunny.com
will continue to exist independent of Sling Media, which I'm glad to hear.
I have to say, I'm jealous. It sounds like Dave has landed exactly the kind of position I've wanted to hold for some years now. I tried to interest TiVo in a similar gig a few times - an official blogosphere liaison and full-time, official online rep (TiVoPony, TiVoStephen, TiVoJerry, et al, do a great
job, but they have other, primary, duties) - but no dice. (I suppose as long as I'm doing it for free.. ;-) ) Congrats Dave! It sounds like a great fit for you. And now I know whom to bug about Sling info. ;-) (So, buddy, about that SlingCatcher beta...)
