In an effort to streamline my life and pursue other goals, I have decided to step down as editor-in-chief of IPR and turn the reins over to the best man possible, Austin Cassidy, the original founder of Third Party Watch.
Two factors influenced my decision to step down: (1) A general loss of interest in third-party politics and electoral politics in general, and (2) the time-consuming nature of IPR (and politics in general) in relation to my other priorities in life: my work and my family.
Those interested can follow my writing at Amateur Economists magazine.
To all of IPR’s readers and especially the frequent commenters: Thank you for helping me build IPR into the premier third-party news source online. I trust Austin and the other contributors — Fred, Trent, Peter, Gregg, paulie, Ross, and VTV (listed in order of seniority) — will continue to build the site by putting forth time and effort that I’m just unable to spend at this time.
