    we need to get word out to all the mobile Nations.... Or tm13 what ever the hell that is going to look like.

    SAVE DEREK KESSLER. Our EIC needs a role in what ever happens next. We need to be heard. Derek writes with amazing skill to draw readers into his posts, there is a lot of technology out there that needs previewing and needs insightful blogging.

    Kevin needs to pull his wallet out and throw some money towards Derek and plead with him to stay on in some form.

    I don't think Derek needs any assistance, from us, at this point in time. If he did, I imagine he'd ask for help, himself.

    Also, the main mobile nations page now lists him as "Managing Editor - Mobile Nations."

    Hi!

    Don't worry, I am not in need of saving. As Brad points out, while I'm still in EiC of webOS Nation, I'm also now the Managing Editor of all of Mobile Nations, which basically boils down I get to write whatever I want on whatever Mobile Nations site I want, along with pitching in when something big is happening (for instance, I led the charge on the last earnings report and call for Apple on iMore), as well as making sure things run smoothly and are well-written. Part Editor-at-Large, part Copy Editor, part Just Being Awesome. It's More Derek In More Places.™

    As for Talk Mobile, you'll see my work, though it'll be as Managing Editor there as well. That means cracking the whip on Daniel, Rene, Phil, and Kevin to get their work done (to quote Kevin, "I think I just made Derek our boss...") and taking care of layout, photography, and a slew of other stuff. I'm not writing as much for this as I am managing, but I'm okay with that. Talk Mobile's going to take a few months to run its course, but it'll be worth it. It's some pretty great stuff we're working on.

    Lastly, thank you! It means a lot to hear such high praise from members and readers - especially with this being your first forum post! Fear not, I'm not going away. They couldn't make me shut up if they tried!

    Derek's being too modest. He's the glue holding all of us together right now.

    In addition to doing the Talk Mobile heavy lifting, he's also been podcasting again!

    Derek joined us for the last two iMore shows:

    iMore show 350: All-new! | iMore.com

    iMore show 351: The flattening | iMore.com

    AND, he joined us for our Star Trek Into Darkness podcast.

    Ad hoc 04: Star Trek Into Darkness | iMore.com

    Dude's going to be everywhere.

    And truly, no one deserves it more.

    (Don't tell him I said any of that!)
    Editor-in-chief, iMore
    Executive producer, Mobile Nations
