PEA Soup 2.0

The next phase of PEA Soup is here.  As
of this announcement, Dan Boisvert, Doug Portmore, and Josh Glasgow are
stepping down from their posts as co-editors of PEA Soup with Dave
Shoemaker.  Going forward, the blog will be run by Dave Shoemaker and
David Sobel.

Those of us stepping down want to take this chance to thank everyone–contributors, commentators, participants in the
Ethics-at-PEA-Soup discussions, and everyone else who is part of
the PEA Soup family–for making the blog such a great place.  This June
will kick off the tenth year of its existence, and when we started so
many years ago, the four of us couldn't have
predicted that such a wonderful community would take root here.  We are
thrilled that this blog has become a valuable site for those working in
ethics and cognate areas. 

We are also grateful to Shoemaker and Sobel for taking things over from here, and we look forward to the next era at PEA Soup.

Sincerely,
Dan, Doug, and Josh
