Transitions remain a fixture on our pages and AccountingToday.com, with the spate of firm mergers and acquisitions keeping up the expected Pac-Man-like pace of consolidation.

We're currently experiencing a transition of our own internally, as our longtime technology editor and friend Seth Fineberg has departed for a new challenge. Meanwhile, I have decided to make a transition of my own, filling the role Seth held so expertly.

While I have really enjoyed exploring and shaping all that the Accounting Tomorrow brand represents, I'm looking forward to mining a new space. It's not a brand-new market, of course, considering the large overlap between young and progressive accountants and technology. I will remain in contact with many of the innovators and thought leaders whose expertise spans both areas.

But the reward will come in continuing my education. One of the themes I've noted in my time covering this contingent has been one of perpetual learning. Industry leaders always speak fondly of their mentors, bookshelves and even serendipitous encounters with other aspirational entrepreneurs that have helped guide their vision and work. I'm hoping to draw from as many wells as I continue the legacy of AccountingTechnology.com and Accounting Today's tech coverage -- with an eye to the future of the market.

I've developed a keen knowledge of that perspective during my time with you, awesome readers and contributors. So it's not goodbye, you'll still see me in these pages and online: @ATomorrow and now @ATechCom.
