Sometimes events conspire. Sometimes it’s just time to move on. Sometimes events provide an excuse to move on. We can hope there’s no hard feelings involved, but we’ll probably never know the whole story.
Cory seems to have a lot of irons in the fire, and seemingly several revenue streams. Didn’t he move to Burbank a few years ago specifically to work on something big that has to do with Disney? (please forgive me if my memory is mistaken.)
Anyway, if he has the wherewithal at this point in his life to move on from BoingBoing (i.e., if he doesn’t need whatever money his BB posts were bringing him) and is able to do whatever else interests him, then more power to him, and I wish him the best in all of his endeavors.
