As from today I, Editor Steve, am retiring from the Telehealth & Telecare Aware editorial team. After giving it my continuous attention for eight years it is time for me to focus on my other interests such as promoting my PowerPoint addins and nurturing my fledgling web design business. From now on I shall only be helping with the tech side of running the site.
I therefore thank you, loyal readers, whose comments and communications have kept me going during these years. I’d particularly like to express my appreciation to Tynetec which has advertised with TTA since it started and has never sought to influence editorial policy or content. Thanks too to Eldercare and Air Products for their sustained advertising support in recent years.
I have very special thanks, of course, for Donna Cusano for the amount of time that she has also put in since 2009 to keep us all up to speed on developments in the US. Without her TTA would have folded several years ago.
So…I am extremely pleased to announce that as I step back Donna has agreed to step forward as TTA’s new Editor in Chief. She will be supported by a number of volunteer contributing editors: Toni Bunting, Chrys Meewella, Mike Burton, Alasdair Morrison and Charles Lowe who will be covering UK developments and introducing their own observations as often seen already in the TANN Ireland and TANN England sites and in comments. My grateful thanks to them too.
I wish Donna and the team every success. They will no doubt set about reinventing and reinvigorating TTA. Donna has already indicated that she would like to shift more towards interpreting trends and that one of the contributing editors has a post for Monday that you will not want to miss!
Best wishes to you all, Ex-editor Steve.
