Ben and Dion step down from, focusing on Palm

Everybody's favorite Developer Relations Duo, Ben Galbraith and Dion Almaer, are looking to help drive Palm and webOS forward even more than they were before. They're stepping down from the web-standards and web-tech blog they founded, Ajaxian, to focus more on Palm and HP (and, well, maybe have a chance to take an hour off every now and then):

This transition comes at an important time for us. Palm was an opportunity to show the world that an OS based on the Web can be fantastic, but now, with HP’s resources behind Palm, there’s an even bigger opportunity ahead that will require all of our focus and energy. Oh, and it’s summer, too. :-)

Ajaxian has been an important resource in driving web technologies forward by calling attention to innovation in that space and by hosting several "Ajax Experience" shows. We trust it will continue to do so with Ben and Dion, who hopefully can spend their newly freed-up time sharing more developer details on the next big version of webOS expected later this year. ;-)
