Paul Beverley is a great ambasssador for RISC OS. I have always found him approachable, non-confrontational and reasonable. He did a great job with Archive magazine, and if he could be persuaded to head ROL now that he has handed over Archive, it would be great. I might even be persuaded to subscribe to select on a strict understanding that I would be receiving applications for my Iyonix.
This is probably fruitless speculation, because I cannot see PM standing down.
