Good luck, Ben and Dion

My now former colleagues Ben Galbraith and Dion Almaer have decided to join Palm to help push the mobile web platform forward for developers.

I’ve had a great time working with them on Bespin, a project that they brought to Mozilla. And while I know that they’ve got some really cool challenges in front of them at Palm, I am personally excited about the next phase that Bespin is about to enter as we solidify the core of Bespin and drive it to become a tool that people will use day to day. I’m also happy that, since Bespin is open source, Ben and Dion will still be free to hack on it whenever they wish. In fact, they’ll be working with Joe, John and me on-site at Mozilla HQ next week as we kick off this long-planned-for work on Bespin.

Best wishes and best of luck to you, guys. I’ve really enjoyed working with you and look forward to meeting up as friends when I visit Mountain View.
