Many of our readers and contributors have asked: What's up with Sensors? Our answer is: We're still here, doing what we've always done—giving you an in-depth look at the technologies and industry events that shape the world of sensors. We're still providing detailed accounts of new, imaginative applications of tried-and-true technologies. What has happened is that we have changed form—not substance. As of this month, Sensors is an online-only publication. Yup, after 23 years in print, the magazine has gone wholly electronic. For those of you who loved the print edition, this is a format change. I'm sure you'll find this version as useful, if not more so. After all, new material will come to you on a daily basis. You'll no longer have to wait for a monthly installment.
What This Means
The most immediate effect of this change is that our daily blog has become a weekly event. We're still posting news updates daily, and in February, we'll launch the What's New at Sensors monthly e-newsletter to give you the leading news stories and new feature articles and departments. Look for the same great in-depth technical articles we've always produced, only now they'll be posted to the Web site throughout the month. As for our regular departments, App Snaps, Wireless Works, and Mel's Picks will continue to be posted monthly. If you've got other favorites, now's the time to pipe up.
Barbara Goode will continue to provide her wonderful industry insights and commentary in her blogs; look for her once a month. On the other hand, Stephanie Henkel, who has been an integral (and charming and funny) part of Sensors through all of its 23 years, is now enjoying a much-deserved rest. And when I say much-deserved, I mean that she's got unused vacation time from all 23 years of her tenure with Sensors. I'll miss working with her very much.
Finally, I leave you with this quote: "The more things change, the more they remain... insane." —Michael Fry and T. Lewis, Over the Hedge, 05-09-04
