So it seems Caleb John Clark., sometime San Diegan and all-around-interesting guy, is still out in the world. He’s an east-coaster now — but I forgive him.
Caleb’s one of the few people I have met a few times in person to talk about running communities. Others include Dennis Wilen and Matt Haughey, as well as the whole evolt.org crew a few years ago.
There’s something specific about running an online community that can only be experienced by doing it. Sure, reading Many 2 Many and Clay Shirky can do it, but to be able to conversate in person — it’s unique.
