The Connector Award by The Buildies

I was given the “Connector Award” in The Buildies Awards. I was given the award by Commsor for being a community builder that brings people together.

The Buildie Awards are highlighting the builders, the creators, the makers, and the doers.

Each winner was asked to provide a short bio, and a handful of predictions about how they think their category will change over the next 3-5 years.

As tooling improves, the impact and value a community has will become more easily quantifiable.

Tech communities will have to come to a reckoning when it comes to addressing national issues as big tech also comes to terms with its social impact positions.

The best standards of trust and safety will become easier for communities to implement themselves.
