There was a short time when I knew I was leaving LAist and the former editor, Jason, had changed his mind about taking the reins. I wasn't sure what would happen to the site. Then noted blogger Tony Pierce lost his Buzznet job and I thought he'd be great and the parent site Gothamist thought he'd be great and, to the joy of all involved, he is great. And here Tony is just days earlier, talking about his dream job, in a video by the excellent Rob Takata. The dream? Basically, editing LAist.
