I should have posted this a couple of weeks ago: Desert Lamp co-founder Evan Lisull and Daily Wildcat writer/editor and independent 'blogger Laura Donovan took their bachelors' degrees at the University of Arizona and will be moving on to bigger things.
Evan started what has come to be the best-written and most interesting 'blog in the state, and got a healthy "blogosphere" conversation going for about a year. He's headed off to the law school at George Mason; something makes me think we'll be seeing his name attached to very interesting things in a few years. Connor Mendenhall will stick around for at least another semester, and both Vishal Ganeshan and some "Storm Bird" guy have been brought on to the Lamp 'blog to keep things going.
Laura Donovan was one of the most capable people I've encountered on Wildcat staff in my seven years in town. No word on her future "plans" other than that the plan for now is no plan, aside from ending up in Washington DC in the fall. It should be interesting.
Best wishes to both of them in their future endeavors!
Release the Kraken, er, Kochtopus!
