I nominate Mishedlo for this year's Feste.

Mishedlo can be found daily on the Mishedlo thread in the investment analysis clubs section of TMF. Mish also posts on the Mish's political quagmire thread Occasionally Mish doesn't post when some TMF operator decides Mish argues too energetically during discussions about the current administration running the executive branch of the U.S. government.

The main reason for my nomination is his unstoppable, and untiring efforts to share global and national economic information along with what may logically happen as a result of that data. Mish is always ready to answer questions and engage in logical debate regarding economic circumstances. At times the debate can become quite lively! To prove he puts his money where his mouth is, Mish sometimes posts info on when he enters and exits various trades and what criteria made him decide to make the decision. The quality of Mish's contributions to the Mishedlo thread are such that numerous other posters such as Rodger Rafter make contributions which are very informative and highly educational. Here's an example.

Mish has been a Fool since 11/2000 and in that time has posted over 46,450 times as of this writing, which is an average of ~25 posts a day. In his spare time Mish is an economist, and photographer.

The Feste award is designed to acknowledge a Fool who shares information and and fosters the Foolish community learning together. While other Fools such as Rodger Rafter and Trenchrat also exhibit the characteristics the Feste illuminates, I can't think of a more deserving recipient than Mish.
