In the middle of September 2013, io9 was pleased to announce that Ria Misra was being hired on as io9's first community editor. This past Friday was her last day at io9/Gizmodo.
In her three years of time as the community editor she helped organize weekly io9 and Gizmodo events and she fed the Observation Deck a lot of views by mainpaging articles like this one and this one.
I am not sure where she goes next, and I will edit this sentence if I get any feedback.
Safe and good travels outside of the io9/Gizmodo universe. You will always be from the future, and you will always be io9's first (... and only?) community editor.
