Having been part of Webmasterworld since 2002, I am really excited about this acquisition. I met Brett and most of the original team of moderators ten years ago this week. What a privilege! This community became my family and every significant thing I've learned about webmastering, seo, sem, internet marketing, usability and social media originated from the Webmasterworld community.
I am delighted that Jim Boykin is the new owner of the Webmasterworld community. He is a long-time member of the forums and he has been attending Pubcon for years. Many people here at Webmasterworld know him; many have sent business his way because his work at Internet Marketing Ninjas speaks for itself. And I've gotten to know him and I think he's a pretty nice guy. I think he's going to take great care of this community - you really couldn't ask for a better guy to take the reins.
I look forward to watching all of the amazing things he's going to do with and for this community.
(oh, come on, I only fixed a little typo in Brett's post ... cut the wife a break!) hehe
