Rapp’s email to friends after the jump…

      Friends —

      Forgive the mass e-mail, but I wanted to let you know that I have taken on a new career challenge as Editorial Director of a group of government technology magazines and web sites published by 1105 Government Information Group, based in Falls Church, Va.

      I will serve Editor in Chief of the flagship, Federal Computer Week, and also oversee publications that include Government Computer News and Washington Technology, among others. My new job begins Dec. 29. (See attached.)

      This does not mean the end of TravelBeat.net, though the soured investment climate has pretty much dampened any development plans we have in mind.

      I’m very excited by this new opportunity to take my new- and old-media skills and my knowledge of government into the fertile arena of government technology. I’ll let you know when I have new contact info but you can always reach me through the email and phone number below.
