Back in August when the WJ team was busy launching our new site, we neglected to mark the departure of an important member of our team, Joe Anderson.
Joe joined the WebJunction team right after the launch of the original WJ site in May 2003. In his early days he served as the site’s content manager. He wrote original content, crafted the early version of our newsletter, Crossroads, and pulled together useful resources and links for our monthly focus. He even started BlogJunction.
In 2006, Joe led a site refresh of WJ that overhauled the look and feel of the site. Over the past 18 months, Joe played a critical role in selecting, integrating, and implementing the current WJ platform tools. In addition to his leadership and technical implementation skills, WebJunction also benefited from his musical talent and humor. Joe has a unique ability to rewrite song lyrics to poke fun at office life, technology, – you name it. For example, while we were testing out a new version of WJ in what had been dubbed “The Sandbox”, Joe penned a song to the tune of “Mr. Sandman” that had us all in stitches.
Joe will be missed but luckily he isn’t going far. He will be just up the street from WJ, implementing cool online technologies with Forum One Communications. We wish him the best!
