Well, sort of.
After nine years of exemplary leadership, Atlantic Monthly National Correspondent James Fallows is stepping down as Chairman of the Board of the New America Foundation — for which I previously served as Executive Vice President and am now Director of the New America Foundation/American Strategy Program.
The new Chairman of the Board — announced today — is Google CEO Eric Schmidt. Eric has also been on New America’s Board for years — and this is very cool news for our outfit (and in the big sense, for the world, the U.S. and you and me).
