    I saw they made a hire for this job... Jon Goldfarb. Anyone know anything about him? They don't list an email. And there are too many people on Twitter with that name. I'd like to welcome him to SD.

    They had someone in there for about a year. He left in March and it's been open since then. I posted on this thread because it's the same job. I was just looking for information on the new SE.
