Hey there What’s Next readers. This is Ian Lopez back again, and as it turns out, this time for good! Your usual esteemed host, Ben Hancock, has moved on to what’s next for him: an awesome new role as data editor. Going forward, he’ll be be working on collecting and sifting through data to do big-picture stories in ALM’s newsroom (think “Big Data Ben”).

In the coming weeks I’ll be making this newsletter my own — keeping much of what Ben brought to the table and trying a few new things, too. So bear with me and feel free to chime in! Send suggestions, tips and more to [email protected], or via Twitter at @IanMichaelLopez.
