I am grateful for Hudson's professional courtesy over the past few years, and appreciate the job she did there. It's not easy to build a site from the ground up -- or rebuild (I'm told the site had an unsuccessful earlier incarnation; I don't remember it, which is part of the point). I wish her the best in whatever she does next. I thought she showed a lot of bravery in engaging certain industry issues from a platform where that kind of engagement might not have always been super-welcome.
In January, Hudson and I spoke at length about her CA gig and her thoughts on several industry issues; that interview is here.
