Well, it’s time for me bid y’all farewell. It’s crazy to think that three years have already gone by. I started contributing to Plugged In shortly after I completed graduate school, and I hope that you’ve enjoyed the posts. I’ve learned a lot from you, dear reader, and so many others who write and cover energy. And I’ve had a blast sharing what I find interesting in the world of energy and humanity.

I can’t say enough about what it’s been like sharing a corner of the Internet with Robynne, Scott, Sheril, Melissa, our guest bloggers over the years, and everyone at Scientific American. And a special thanks to Bora Zivkovic for making this blog network a reality and giving this engineer a platform on the web. I’m gonna miss writing with you guys! I can’t wait to see what’s next for Plugged In.

As for me, I’m leaving the green hills and breakfast tacos of Austin, TX for the Middle East. I’m excited to get back to my roots as a research engineer and explore a new (to me) part of the world. I’ll still be on Twitter (@davidwogan) and you can email me at david.m.wogan@gmail.com, so don’t be a stranger.
