After staring at our posts day after day, you've probably grown to like—and hate—a few of us. Well, we'd love it if you'd express any positive feelings and showed us just how much you like us on our Facebook pages.
You see, most of Gizmodo's staff members maintain individual Facebook pages for our thoughts, photos, and random non-Gizmodo links. You can click on our names below to view them. Go on and do it, we promise we won't accuse you of Facebook stalking.
Long ago, Brian lurked around boxing gyms and the offices of WIRED and Maximum PC. He left those for Gizmodo and its once tiny staff—two writers and two interns. Now that he's helped the site and the staff grow, our Editorial Director Extraordinaire's trying out a side project called Scuttlefish, a site focusing on the awe-inspiring nature of the sea.
When Jason's not sticking things down his pants or cooing over his adorable pet bunny, he's running a pretty tight ship as Gizmodo's Lead Editor. It's difficult for any of us to misbehave too much under his watchful eyes, so we often try to get him drunk when we want to cause mischief.
Joe Brown, our Features Editor, came over to us from WIRED and Pop Sci. Before working for those publications, he was an auto mechanic, a chef, and spent two years absorbing Japanese culture. He knows gadgets well enough to know that 95% of them are junk, and he's not shy about revealing that.
Some of us are convinced that Jesus is incapable of writing a post that isn't intriguing, mind-blowing, awesome, or all of the above with a scoop of ice cream on top. He's the guy who'll manage to make our staff chat room fill with laughter even on the worst days.
If some of us hadn't met Joel, we'd think he's a mythical creature who only appears to write a few killer posts before fading into the fog. He was among Gizmodo's earliest writers, pokes around Kotaku, helped create Consumerist, bossed people around at WIRED, contributed to many major publications, and lurks around Boing Boing when no one notices.
If pork buns, coffee, and sweets didn't exist, Matt'd wither away—so we definitely thank the culinary gods for keeping him around. He brings us so much knowledge about cameras, mobile devices, and other gadgets that we didn't even mind hiring an intern whose sole purpose is to make sure that Matt hasn't fallen asleep at the keyboard again.
When Brian isn't reporting for Gizmodo, he's making people laugh while working as an actor, comedian, and master of improv. He's talented and seems to have an incredible knack for turning anything he touches into comedy gold.
Before joining Gizmodo, Kat worked for the UK's Tech Digest and T3, so she's definitely got a great grip on the tech scene. We appreciate her not only for her wit and quirky tastes, but also because she's around to work during the odd hours when the rest of us would rather be sleeping. Follow her oddly-timed tweets here.
Rosa got her start blogging for Gizmodo's more serious sister site, Lifehacker. She currently splits her time between Gizmodo, msnbc.com's Technolog, and TODAY's Digital Life. If you feel the urge to know more about her and the trouble she's creating, then we recommend paying attention to her tweets.
Kyle is the magical force which keeps our interns free of trouble and our chat rooms full of inside jokes. He's the perfect balance of enthusiasm, experience, energy, and kindness—but God help you if you come between him and a sandwich.
While we often make fun of Sam for his peculiar taste in sweaters, we definitely appreciate all the news culture experience he brings to our team. We believe that the writing talent may run in the family as Sam has apprenticed under his father, a tech and science journalist from the days when computers had double digit MHz clock speeds.
Sam probably didn't know what was ahead of him when he made his first digital painting about three years ago—after all, it'd be pretty odd if he managed to predict that he'd find himself drawing a guy riding a space raptor! Either way, he's full of talent and we're happy to have him around for our awkward illustration requests.
