Hypebot Favicon

(UPDATED) Congratulations are in order for two people that in another era would both be considered Hypebot's competitors: Wired's Eliot Van Buskirk is leaving the Epicenter blog to do something cool and currently top secret for The EchoNest. (Here is his farewell post.) And CD Baby's Kevin Breuner has just posted the 100th episode of his wonderful DIY Musician Podcast.  Both deserve our thanks for doing great work.
