Who else would like these forums?

(Andrew Chen) #1

The Backchannel is just a few months old, but lots of fun discussions happening already.

Who else would like these forums? Anyone you want to recommend?

I’m going to announce these forums in a few weeks on my blog, so right now is the best chance to claim the amazing usernames, etc. :slight_smile: I’d love to keep this small, vibrant community going, and then to bring in the rest of my blog audience later in the year once the core community’s been established.

(Andrew Chen) #3

Yeah, that plus other colleagues that might enjoy chiming in here.

How did I forgot the father of all tech influencers: Kevin Kelly.
