I've posted the press release here so that you would be aware of the change in ownership.



What does this mean?



For one, it means that you'll see a little more of my name around the place! More importantly, it means that a new push will be happen with the site. Over the past year or two the site has been running on cruise control. Going forward, Jupitermedia and I will be working with several of you to reinvigorate the site with new FAQs as well as bringing updated links and other content to the site. We will be working to update the article links, the downloads, and other features on the site.



jGuru is a great site and I look forward to working with you to make it an even better site. If you have questions, concerns, or want to volunteer to help on the site, then drop me an email or post to let us know.
