Sarah Milstein, the newest Happy Mutant!

We at Boing Boing are delighted to welcome the latest addition to the Happy Mutants family, Sarah Milstein! Sarah joins us as our first-ever Operations Manager and Chief Loop Closer! We've had concentric orbits with Sarah for years and she's the perfect person to help us focus on what needs to be done in the short term, get our heads around what's possible in the long term, and grow thoughtfully.

Sarah was a longtime managing editor at O'Reilly Media, co-wrote Google: The Missing Manual, and co-created the O'Reilly Tools of Change Conference for Publishing. Sarah is also part of the extended MAKE: and CRAFT cabal. After leaving O'Reilly, she worked with Metaweb on its community efforts. And now with Tony Stubblebine of CrowdVine, Sarah's co-organizing the Web2Open unconference accompanying the Web 2.0 Expo next month in San Francisco.

We feel incredibly fortunate that Sarah is bringing her expertise to Happy Mutants so we can get busy on a slew of fun and exciting new ideas. And as always, we appreciate the continued support of you, our community, with the ongoing expansion, evolution, and, of course, mutation of Boing Boing. Welcome, Sarah!

(Thanks, Dale Dougherty, executive recruiter-at-large!)
