Online Communities Endure as Platforms Come and Go
"The death of a few entrants into the field of online-community-empowering software and services should be seen as a normal adjustment to overinvestment in particular technologies and services. We’ve observed many communities being displaced as corporate strategies change or as the service providers go out of business. But like Christine, the haunted 1958 Plymouth Fury in Stephen King’s novel, the pieces of displaced online groups seem to knit themselves back together quite readily. Before long, the engine is revving again, the radio playing the same song as it was before she was thrown on the scrapheap."
I'm CEO of an online trade publishing firm in the marketing and defense verticals. We try to make news and data digestible and useful in an environment that is more noisy each day. This personal blog mixes my thoughts and interests on politics, business, software, and more, based on my business and personal experiences. Over the years I have posted items that turned out spectacularly wrong, and a few posts that stood the test of times better. Personal views only.
