Today marked my last day with the legal consulting firm Jaffe Associates. I have enormous respect for Jay Jaffe and his staff of marketing, media relations and creative professionals. But I have been craving more freedom to pursue projects that interest me, without having to be concerned about professional conflicts or divided allegiances. I had reduced my hours with Jaffe last summer to allow more time for my media-law work, and as that continued to demand more of my time, it seemed a good point to move on from Jaffe.

I will continue to be available on a limited basis to consult on projects related to media, technology and editorial development. I hope to have more time now to blog, both here and at my other blog, Media Law. What else I do, time will tell.
