"David Woolley is THE authority, as far as I’m concerned, on computer-mediated
conferencing systems, and one of the true pioneers of online community, dating
back to his pioneering work with PLATO Notes. He truly understands both the
social and technical aspects of social cyberspace."

"David Woolley knows the technical aspects of message boards and conferencing systems better
than anyone I know. But he's also got a firm grasp of what it takes to build an online community, or
host an online event, and a sensibility of what the technology can do to solve real problems. It’s a
rare enough combination, but he's also fun to work with, writes and talks plainly to non-technical
people, and gets stuff done quickly. Hire this guy!"
