Mr. Kawasaki's letter in full:
In the past two years Apple has experienced a stunning turnaround. This is due to many things including the steadfast loyalty of Apple's customers--and EvangeListas are the most steadfast of the steadfast.
The original purpose of EvangeList was to counteract the negative news about Apple and Macintosh, and I believe that EvangeList has served its purpose--fantastically, as a matter of fact. So after discussing what we should do with EvangeList with the folks at Apple, we've decided to retire the list.
There are now many other sources of Macintosh and Apple information and enthusiasm. Apple itself has a biweekly mail list that covers topics such as new product info, software updates, third-party info, special offers, invitations to seminars & events, and customer stories. You can sign up for this list at:
If you'd like to keep in touch with what I'm doing, please sign up for my new mail list. I promise low traffic, interesting messages, and conflicts of interest. :-) It would be great to keep in touch with all 40,000 of you...a 40,000 member list is an extremely powerful thing.

Thanks for your years of support for Apple and Macintosh--and me personally. It's been a great ride and a stunning proof of the power of the people! My best wishes for continued happiness and success.
Guy Kawasaki, who is and shall remain pure Macintosh
Nonetheless, it is sad to see this bastion of the Mac faithful see its last day.
