Brian Lam Departs Gizmodo

Brian Lam, the Editor-in-Chief for Gawker Media’s technology site Gizmodo, is leaving after five years. His farewell post didn’t say much, but The New York Times managed to gain access to a memo from Nick Denton about Lam’s departure:

A very quick note to let you know about a big change at Gizmodo before the news hits externally: Brian Lam is leaving the site after five years.

Having moved to the New York office, Joe Brown — another Wired veteran — is taking over as editor in chief at the end of the month. Matt Buchanan will be deputy editor.

Brian is writing up a post on Gizmodo. But let me just say this: Brian’s editorial flair and empathetic management are inspirational. He’s put together the best technology team on the Web. It’s hard to imagine Gizmodo without him; but it will always carry his DNA.
