Editorses-ins-chiefses Marek Zemek 2013-2015 This is the first I've learned that Marek joined just because of CAS. I always thought he was interested in the magazine and gravitated to us naturally. Funny that. Marek was -- probably still is -- a wellspring of ideas and talent. He knew how these things called computers worked AND how to use them. He introduced a lot of new concepts for us. He designed our font. Did you know that? Look at the top of the page where it says "nothing - goodbye." That's the Nothing Font. It belongs to us. That's our Helvetica. I mentioned once -- ONCE! -- how cool it would be to have our own unique font. A few minutes (ed. note: days, actually, maybe a couple of weeks) later, he wrote back and said, "What about this?" and it was perfect. It suited us perfectly. He made it out of thin air. So then I was like, yeah, this is my new editor. Eva by that time was pretty swamped with being a DP2 student, so she gladly accepted the position of Production Supervisor and oversaw the whole business while Marek took over the day-to-day operations, and got the other guys in his class to pitch in. They did, and were one of the most productive groups I've worked with -- which was odd, because, excluding Marek, they were some of the most unproductive students in our school's history. Marek set a standard that is still in effect today. He gave the magazine the look it has, carried it over to the digital age, and never complained. I think he liked doing what he did. Nothing under Marek was a true golden age for the magazine. Marek: thank you. My path to becoming editor-in-chief was sudden. I admit my main motivation to join Nothing was filling up that good ol’ CAS portfolio. Yes, I was one of those, but that doesn’t mean I was going to do a half-assed job. As it turns out, I joined the crew in a time of turmoil, what with the transition to an all-electronic format, most of the old guard leaving or having to focus on other responsibilities, and various other roadbumps. The crew managed to stick it out, though, and the magazine got back on track. Apparently, I was so good at sticking it out that Mr. Healy made me the Editor-in-Chief. Huzzah! Looking back, my time as the captain has been an immensely valuable lesson that I’m very thankful for. I found out what it’s like to step out of my comfort zone, what work ethic is, and what working in a group means (with all the pros and cons associated with that). My memory is pretty bad, so things that happened several years ago are mostly but a blurry blob of abstract feelings with a couple concrete memories interspersed throughout – kind of like plum pudding. What I can say, though, is that the part of the pudding that’s associated with Nothing is quite tasty. Overall, I’d give it 4.8 out of 5 stars.
