We’re all on this crazy website right now for a reason. For each one of you, there was a moment – a friend sent you a future lower back problems gallery, you came across a funny meme on social media, someone wearing a Bill Murray shirt gifted you a beer and you were curious enough to stumble across this website – whatever it was, you’re here now. Some of you had your first experience here 1, 5, 10, or even 14 years ago. Some among you may be visiting for the very first time to read this post. But the cool thing is we’re all sharing in this moment together. Now what do we do with it?
I’d like to reminisce about the past decade, starting with the time John and Leo sat me down at Fado’s Irish Pub in Atlanta, Georgia to offer me an opportunity to harness the power of a crazy community for the good. That community, I learned, was calling themselves “Chivers” and in a matter of moments, they were about to change the world.
