What social systems are you all using to manage your communities on your websites? What do you hate about them? What do you like?

One day our credit & debit card transaction histories will be better structured and we'll actually know exactly what we bought and where. Still today, it's hard to figure out everything.

That would require a bank account linked to Foursquare for tracking purposes ...

What happens when you mix PMs from Microsoft with designers from Apple and engineers from Google? Facebook.

I don't get it. We spend 40 years wandering the desert and I can't go one weekend in Florida without getting a terrible sunburn.

    We build better conversation channels for communities, based off the same social design principles I advocated for while being the Social Design evangelist at Facebook previously. The future of the Internet is in smaller, distributed networks with unified data and conversation tools.

Story
Tagline
Passionate about building online systems to unify the fragmented offline world
Introduction
Storyteller turned designer with a passion for communicating ideas and a love of building projects that connect people in meaningful ways.

Ex-Facebook, Ex-Google and Ex-Apple, my focus now is building the best online conversation tools for small / niche communities. We shouldn't have to use different websites for each way we communicate; instead, we should invert the web and make each site a different group of people and conversation theme, each with the same powerful communication tools. It's the context that makes all the difference.
