(Talk) MY JOURNEY WITH ANIME NEWS NETWORK by Christopher MacDonald

Christopher Macdonald, CEO & Publisher A former network engineer and administrator by trade, Christopher Macdonald lives in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. His first real exposure to anime (or japanimation as he knew it then) was Bubblegum Crisis which he saw in the summer of 1989. In 2000 he submitted a guest editorial to Anime News Network, and soon became co-editor-in-chief, along with George Phillips. Originally the site was a hobby for both of them, however in 2003 Macdonald left his networking job in order to focus exclusively on ANN and in 2004 Phillips stepped down from his position as co-editor-in-chief. For several years, Macdonald wrote all of ANN’s news and personally edited every article on ANN, however as the site and its staff grew he had to focus on “managing” the site and now leaves most of the editorial work in the capable hands of ANN’s editors and contributors. Reflecting his shifting responsibilities, Macdonald stepped down from the editor-in-chief position in late 2010. As publisher, his editorial involvement is mostly limited to planning the editorial “direction” of the website.

Aside from anime, he has many other interests, for which he has little time. Those that he does make some time for include motorsport, traveling, skiing and cycling.
