Housekeeping: In Which Tim Cain Owes Us Timbits

housekeeping in which tim cain owes us timbits

As you’ve no doubt already seen, Tim Cain is leaving us to pursue another opportunity. We wish him well, but as punishment, he owes us Timbits from Tim Hortons. Lots of Timbits. Like, caseloads.

Confectionery jokes that I have already run into the ground aside, what does this mean for the site? If you love Tim’s sales analysis, it will still be a part of TTAC – just less often. He will still post for us a few times a month on a part-time basis.

Contributor Matt Guy will be posting more for us going forward, and Corey Lewis and Matt Posky will be a bit more in the mix than they already are. I, too, will be posting more often. The rest of our content mix will stay the same as it has been. So keep your eyes peeled for the usual features (QOTD, Ace of Base, et cetera) at the usual days and times.

Does this mean there is a full-time opening at TTAC? Not right now, no. If something does open up in the future, we’ll be sure to let you know. We may, however, run freelance pieces from time to time, so don’t fret if you see new bylines. We’re also open to pitches, of course.

We’re sad to see Tim go, and happy that the two Matts and Corey will be a larger part of our content mix. And Tim isn’t fully gone – he’s promised to keep us entertained in Slack by regaling us with tales of island life and culinary oddities.

Carry on with your days, you rascals.

    Good news. As long as he takes with him the breathless "mid size sedans are dead" hyperbole.

      @mike978 And where has he said that exactly? More of your hyperbole. He has only said that bit players will continue to lose market share. And they have. You can keep on putting words in his mouth if it makes you feel more justified in your complaining, but that's all it'll be: your words, not his. You've went from him saying all midsize cars are dead, to a few will be dying. Keep back peddling until you get it right.

    "Timbits" sounds like a good name for a series of editorials from Tim. Lol
