Gus Sentementes in 2012

Gus Sentementes, a Baltimore Sun reporter who covered topics from business to crime to technology, left the Sun on Nov. 30. (November 30, 2012)

Today is my last day at The Baltimore Sun. It's been an amazing 12 years at this newspaper.

I started here as an editorial assistant on the business desk. I covered business news for years -- from the fall of Bethlehem Steel to the rise of Millennial Media. I also spent several years covering Baltimore's police department and crime.

Along the way, I grew incredibly interested in technology, from the gadgets and Internet services that were changing my profession to the people and companies that were on the cutting edge here in Maryland.

With the Sun's blessing, I launched the BaltTech blog. I've had a blast, and even was inspired by the many bright entrepreneurs in Baltimore to launch my own lil' startup.

Starting next week, I'll be working at Johns Hopkins University, helping this important Baltimore institution navigate in social media. I'm excited about the opportunity.

But for now, thanks for letting me tell some great stories in Baltimore. And thank you to all my colleagues at this great newspaper for a wonderful, life-changing 12 years.

If you wish to reach me, I can be found at @gussent on Twitter.

Best wishes, all.

Gus
