Well, looks like the news is out! As All Things D just reported, we've brought on some exciting new hires in the past few weeks to help us build our new site, and we'd like to (re)introduce them to you. Say hello to:

  • Thomas Ricker (@trixxy): Our main man in Amsterdam, Thomas is one of the sharpest critics in the industry, with unmatched eye for news and the unmistakable confidence of a ginger who's seen it all.
  • Sean Hollister (@starfire2258): Sean will be heading up our West Coast operations with Dieter Bohn, and we couldn't be more excited to have him on the team -- he's a gifted writer with a brilliant speaking voice, a sharp sense of humor, and the ability to throw a full-bore emergency LAN party in under 45 minutes.
  • Joe Flatley (@lennyflatley): Some have called Joe the soul of our team; others have called him our guilty conscience. Still others call him Lenny, for reasons unknown. All we know is that he's a talented writer who's not to be trifled with. He's also an excellent bass player.
  • Thomas Houston (@thomashouston): You've probably seen Thomas around the web before -- he was the former editor-in-chief of Switched and Download Squad. We're thrilled that he's decided to join us, and we plan to lean heavily on his experience as we continue building our new site. He's also incredibly good at finding hilarious lols on the internet.

We couldn't be happier to announce these new members of our team -- they're all extremely talented writers, and you'll be seeing their work very, very soon. Join us in saying welcome!
