Flex Authority Announces New Editor-in-Chief
Roundbox Globalís Leif Wells joins the House of Fusion team to provide editorial and managerial support for the Flex Authority Journal.
[USPRwire, Thu Mar 26 2009] House of Fusion, Inc. announced that Leif Wells will succeed Jeffry Houser as Editor-in-Chief of Flex Authority. Since the journalís debut in 2008, Wells has served as a staff writer and technical editor for the publication. This previous work and his obvious enthusiasm made him the perfect candidate to replace Houser after his departure earlier this year, said Judith Dinowitz, House of Fusion's Master Editor-in-Chief.
Wells brings fifteen years of development experience to his new role, from his work with Macromind Director in the early 1990s to his current position as Rich Internet Applications Evangelist at Roundbox Global. A very active member of the Flex community, Wells recently became an Adobe Community Expert for Flex. In addition, he has managed the Adobe Flash Platform User Group of Atlanta and the Atlanta Flash Meetup for the past three years.
"Leif's experience and love of the Flex community will make him a good fit for Flex Authority," said Dinowitz. "Leif brings an energy and enthusiasm about Flex and the community that's a real asset to the journal. Under his editorial direction, we look forward to taking Flex Authority to a new level and serving the community better."
"I believe a healthy Flex community needs a vibrant and exciting print-based magazine, and when the position of Editor-in-Chief became available I decided that this was a good place for me to affect change in the Flex community," Wells wrote in his personal blog at www.leifwells.com. "Over the years I have been able to offer many things to the Atlanta community, and I believe it is about time that I take steps on a larger stage. Flex Authority was already giving me that opportunity, but as Editor-in-Chief, my editorials will add my own voice to the chorus of the community and allow me to guide a larger audience."
Flex Authority publishes quarterly and is currently in production for issue 3. Since its launch last year, the magazine has been heralded for smart, well-written analysis and commentary on Flex and AIR, as well as for its impressive structure and layout.
