Dear Gizmodo Readers,

I've had the good fortune to step into a new position here at Gawker Media—something we're calling 'Executive Editor, Technology.' That means I'll be helping the editors of Gizmodo, Lifehacker, The Consumerist, and Kotaku continue to provide you daily injections of news and (occasionally, inadvertently) perspective on all the latest and greatest around the web.

I rewrote that paragraph about five times before giving up, so if I sound like a stuffy prick, forgive me.

What's that mean to you? More of what you've grown to love about Gizmodo—and hopefully less of what you haven't. I'll be, you know, around, learning and loving.

To that end, I'd like to hear everything you love about Gizmodo and everything you hate. That can be editorial focus, site design features, tone—whatever. We've got a better team at Gizmodo with John Biggs and crew than we've ever had before, and I want to know what I can do to help them keep improving.

Shoot me an email at joel@gawker with your suggestions and critiques.

Joel
