Joshua Topolsky leaves Bloomberg

But the last few months have been difficult for me. I started to feel a desire to go even further, beyond the shores of business-focused coverage (this is Bloomberg after all), into the broader, weirder, and nerdier side of my interests — something I knew might not be a perfect fit for that audience. I think launching a new podcast on my own (Tomorrow, for those of you who don’t know), was an attempt to scratch that itch. But that wasn’t enough: I wanted to do more and it was clear that it wasn’t going to be possible to do that work from inside the Bloomberg offices.

Interesting news from Josh and it is hardly surprising. Too many sites are putting adverts above the user experience and aiming only for traffic at the expense of the actual content. I fully understand the need to make money for a business on the web, but what I will never understand is the lack of foresight when it comes to just doing the right thing and letting things grow naturally.
