Ning Advocates: Yoz Grahame & Phil McCluskeyDeveloper
I wanted to take a moment and re-introduce Yoz Grahame and Phil McCluskey, our Ning Advocates. They have a hard job with a simple goal: ensure that both technical and non-technical users of Ning get what they need from the Playground as quickly and easily as possible.
Phil represents the great country of Australia and is the creator of such Ning hits as Confess!, Review It (to set up your own Google Map mash-up for reviews of anything), Ning Press (our cute little blog app) and Storyteller. Off Ning, Phil is also the creator of the FlickrFox extension for FireFox, rubhub, and author of Divide and Concur.
As for Yoz, he’s the only person at Ning with a Burning Man wedding under his belt. He’s also been involved in several renegade e-democracy services in the UK such as FaxYourMP.com and TheyWorkForYou.com, as well as commercial projects related to the works of Douglas Adams (author of the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy). He’s also a top notch hacker who has created the spread of (highly alpha stage!) good cheer on Ning known as Sweeties.
Phil and Yoz are here to help you with the large and small things on Ning. If there is anything any of us can do to help make your experience on Ning smoother, drop us a line.
You’ve told us that we’re doing pretty darn good, but we know we can always do better. It’s not easy building a great service that empowers anyone to create and enjoy social web apps, but that’s the fun of it!
