This issue of User Experience brings with it a set of transitions.
As last issue’s readers learned, former editor-in-chief Aaron Marcus has stepped down and we have flattened the UPA Publications hierarchy by not replacing him—in part, because he’s irreplaceable.
As director of publications, I have accepted the challenge to integrate our UPA Publications portfolio, including UX. At the same time, Joe Bugental and Aga Bojko have rolled up their sleeves and become associate managing editors, working with managing editor Chris Koster to coordinate all the pieces of the magazine.
We want to give special thanks to two people who have played a significant role in UX—Tomer Sharon, editorial board member, and Martha Sippel, content editor. Both leave big shoes to fill! We wish you well in your new adventures.
