What brought you to The Verge?

I've for a long time been a tech blog reader, and Engadget was by far my favorite site, for no small part of Josh and crew. I loved the work they did. After taking around a year hiatus from actively following the tech sphere, I came back to reading Engadget, but something was missing. After a while I found out what happened with AOL and how The Verge was formed, and I now love The Verge! It's got the same charm Engadget used to have (and still has a fair bit of).

So - What brought you to be an active Verge follower? Are there any others that got pulled by Josh, or what other reasons does the Verge get your forum commenting time?
