About You

You are a connector and are delighted by the concept of hundreds of strangers coming together to collaborate on something they love. You have a voice people listen to and love. Your friends look to you to know what the latest cool new web product is, and you have a hard time not commenting on everyone's facebook status updates. You are a strategic thinker that can keep their eye on the prize, while diving into the details and make stuff happen at all levels. You've marketed to consumers before and understand that nothing can buy a user's loyalty better than a great product and an authentic voice. You work well with others and play even better. If this sounds like you, we want to hear from you!
