American Sociological Association - Section on Science, Knowledge, and Technology (SKAT) "It is with some regret that your newsletter co-editors, Jen Croissant and Franz Foltz, are announcing their resignations.  To give plenty of time for a transition, our last edition will be the Summer 2004 printing, unless someone takes up the call sooner.  The two-year’s notice should be taken as a signal to potential editors or co-editors that the work of producing the newsletter is not at all onerous.  Once you have a template and calendar established, it is mostly a matter of communicating with section officers, and taking the information that already comes across your desk and adding it to the newsletter."
