If some of us hadn't actually met Joel in person, we'd still believe that he's some sort of mythical creature who only appears to write a few stunning posts before disappearing into the fog again. He was among Gizmodo's earliest writers, poked around Kotaku, had a hand in the creation of Consumerist, bossed people around at WIRED, contributed to many major publications, and probably still lurks around Boing Boing when no one is paying attention.
