This week is Philly Tech Week and I was fortunate enough to have one of the minds behind it, Christopher Wink, join me on my Leading Matters podcast. Chris and his co-founder Brian Kirk founded what I believe is one of the best locally focused media outlets in the country, technical.ly. If you have never visited technical.ly then stop what you are doing and go spend some time on the site right now. What you’ll find is the type of journalism that is hard to come by these days, and that is exactly as Chris and Brian want it to be.
What they have built is focused on the vision they had when they graduated from Temple University in 2008, make the city better through technology. To get a better sense about Chris and Brian and what they are up to also take a moment to read their recent coverage in Philly Mag, and then give my conversation with Chris a listen. What you’ll hear is how he and Brian have stayed true to the mission, how they have built a team that shares their values, the importance of trust, and their tireless practice of continuous experimentation of new methods that serve to bring the tech community closer together.
