I’m at the Tools of Change for Publishing conference this week interviewing folks at the forefront of the publishing world. I’ll be posting a few videos here on Radar and you can find others at the TOC blog.
My favorite part of TOC is the energy. There’s a lot of positivity coursing through the venue. There’s a lot of forward thinking, too. And when you run into Richard Nash, founder of Cursor, you’re encountering the embodiment of all that TOC enthusiasm. He’s the anti-curmudgeon.
As you’ll see in the following interview, Nash is passionate about the web’s ability to connect audiences and authors with the topics that excite them. I found his thoughts on tagging really compelling (1:57 mark). It’s a useful reference point for the organic nature of web communities.
