How are you involved with online community? (e.g. community manager, developer, owner, member)

All of the above, over at, a creative writing community I founded in late 2007. I've also been managing and participating in online communities since the dawn of time. (Okay, about 20 years, going back to the olden days of dial-up.)

How long have you been involved with managing or operating an online community?

See above. A long time. :)

What's your community called, and where can we find it?

Check out, a creative writing community of over 16,000 authors who love to create fiction and collaborate. I own, design, develop and manage Protagonize with the help of my volunteer moderation team.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself. :)

I'm an iPad geek. I've got both a first gen and a second gen. Now I'm working on optimizing web content for it... good times!


Principal Consultant at Taunt Media (@tauntmedia). Also, founder & developer of award-winning creative writing community Protagonize (@protagonize). All-around nice guy. Find me on Twitter at @nickb & @vancouvercx.

    Nick - Join the HackerNest Vancouver Tech Socials (formerly IMAGINEERISM) and become a part of Canada's largest tech meetup community. This is a casual, social group for technologists (and often entrepreneur-ty­pes) to come together, mingle, and perhaps find a partner in crime or two. Our goal is to unite Canada's brilliant-but-d­isparate tech community; we accomplish this by cramming very smart people into a room and providing free beer*. Join us at­­

    Thanks Nick for having and acting on the idea that community builders need guidance. In thinking about topics for our first meetup, I'm wondering if you'd like to talk about your experience in facing the challenges building­. What did you do you think is right, wrong, your future plans for it, and what you think it will take to get it from where it is to where you'd like it to be. That's got to be an interesting, instructive story.
