Mary Jo Foley Leaving Ziff Davis for ZDnet - this news just in courtesy of

Mary Jo Foley dropped a bombshell this afternoon, announcing she was leaving MicrosoftWatch to branch out on her own after 11 years at ZiffDavis. What are her plans for the future? LonghornBlogs has the exclusive Exit Interview.

RWM: You’ve been covering Microsoft for ZiffDavis for a very long time. What made you to decide to go solo?
MJF: It just seemed like the time was right. It’s a bloggers’ market out there. Blogging is the future of journalism, in my opinion. More and more bloggers
are not just reacting to – but actually breaking – news. I wanted to try my hand at running a business that was blog-centric from the get-go. So I decided to take my show on the road.

RWM: Does this mean you’ll be moving back to Redmond? Will we be seeing you in the cafeteria of Building 10 anytime soon?
MJF: I am an East Coaster by birth and plan to stay one for the foreseeable future. So I will continue to do my job of watching Microsoft from the Right Coast, in NYC. But you might see me in the Building 10 cafeteria; some folks report that they’ve seen me flipping burgers
there in the guise of a line cook :). Truth or urban legend? I take the fifth.
