Why, you may ask, am I stepping down after exactly 10 years in this position? When I first accepted the editorship, there was an initial term of three years. After that time, the appointment was renewed on an annual basis by both IS&T and SPIE, the two organizations that jointly publish JEI. However, in 2008, the SPIE Board of Directors wisely decided to establish 10-year term limits for all their journal editors, and the IS&T Board concurred. Of course, this was a very good idea. It is always good to bring in someone new with a fresh perspective, heightened energy, and new ideas. It also provided me with a graceful way to step down.
