What will change is a good thing- both Kevin and I have joined the Giga Omni Media group and will be able to focus all of our time on writing for you here on jkOnTheRun.  This is exciting for us both and we hope for you too.  We will continue to do all of the things you’ve told us that you like from us, posting on the topics of interest, podcasting and video reviews of hot stuff.  Any changes you see here will be merely cosmetic as we can now tap the technical expertise of Giga Omni Media and make the site cleaner and faster.  Having these resources at our disposal will not only mean your experience on the site will get better but it means that Kevin and I can concentrate solely on creating the content you crave.  Now that’s a very good thing.
