I'm new in today and joined because I've enjoyed following discussions here over the past couple of months. And thanks to the FeverBee team for allowing folks like me to sign up.
I am an independent consultant working in and around technology - including several years in investment banking (boo, but I was one of the good guys, promise!), plus more recently focusing on film and television. You can check me out on LinkedIn if interested - see my FeverBee profile for the link.
I've been through a 6 month evaluation of Discourse and other 'new age' forums, notably NodeBB. Discourse finally got my vote because of the rich topic threading tools - specifically the ability to start a new thread from an existing conversation, and the topic summary card which shows contributors and links. It was a close run thing though, and in many other respects, NodeBB came out on top.
I'm close to releasing my first community (although not strictly true, as I ran a Community Server forum some years ago) which is aimed at the Film & Television community. I am also working on a personal community project focused on health and wellbeing - in particular providing help to the desperate who, increasingly these days, have fewer and fewer options available to them.
That's it from me.
Hi to everybody,
London and thereabouts.
