Ryan Block

Huge congrats to Ryan. I’ve never met Ryan, and know him only through online communications, but I like him. I think he’s a decent guy, and I consider him an iFriend – so I couldn’t be happier that he was named Editor-in-Chief at Engadget!

Nice job Ryan, and best of luck!

Back in June of 2004 when Pete tricked me persuaded me to write a bit on the side for Engadget, I figured itd be an entertaining way to flex my then-atrophying writing muscle and play with some gadgets. But I never fathomed just how Engadget would change and change me in the coming years. Its almost surreal to say, but just a couple weeks shy of my third year Ive accepted the role of Engadgets new editor-in-chief, an honor Im ill-equipped to articulate and unsure Ill ever be able to live up to but Ill try.
