This Wednesday, I will be recording an interview with Derek Powazek. We will be chatting about web communities, about site redesigns and how to launch them when a community is involved, and about the future of print publishing.
Please suggest questions to ask Derek by posting them to this thread!
Named one of the top 40 ‘Industry Influencers’ of 2007 by Folio Magazine, Derek Powazek has worked the web since 1995 at pioneering sites like HotWired, Blogger, and Technorati.
He is the author of “Design for Community: The Art of Connecting Real People in Virtual Place” (New Riders, 2001). He is the cofounder of JPG, the photography magazine that’s made by its community, and cofounder 8020 Publishing, the company that grew out of its success.
Derek now splits his time between working as a consultant for HP Labs on MagCloud and editing Fray, the quarterly book of true stories and original art. Derek lives in San Francisco with his wife, two nutty Chihuahuas, a grumpy cat, and a house full of plants named Fred.
