As we all know, February is Black History Month. It’s a month where we honor those who have made an impact on American culture for equal rights, those who have invented, those who have a helped others and those who have inspired everyone to be the best they can be, not only as a person of color but as a human.
As someone in the technology/web/social space, I often travel and attend various events in the industry and notice a huge lack of diversity, and when it comes to getting attention from mainstream media/tech blogs it’s almost impossible. That’s why I’m starting 28 Days of Diversity on SocialWayne.com. The goal of 28 Days of Diversity is to feature someone new everyday for the month of February for just being awesome in their own right. The list will include some of leaders in the social web space, startups, bloggers, conference organizers, IT professionals and friends not ranked in any particular order. Each post will include a picture, bio, two links from the selected person and this paragraph. So for the next 28 days, come back to visit SocialWayne.com to see who’s on the list. For day 17, I would like to introduce to some and present to others: Tyme White/strong>
Tyme is a twelve-year veteran writing about technology, business, and web interactions. Tyme founded a large gaming community, encouraging game developers and programmers to interact with their users. Establishing the community prior to the first internet bubble and participating in social interactions as they first began, gave Tyme a powerful advantage in understanding the importance of digital relationships for business and personal use.
As the previous co-owner of one of the first blogging networks, Tyme focused on helping writers with their sites and strengthening the bond community members had with the community. Working with members, potential members and interacting with users, Tyme realized there was often a gap between what the site owner wanted to accomplish and what was being accomplished. Trying to fill that gap, Tyme gave advice on how a site owner can create quality content and form long lasting relationships with users online.
Today, Tyme owns and authors Elixsir.com. Using the experiences mentioned above, along with her master’s degree in Business Management, she educates readers on how to have successful businesses online, discusses technologies that will aid users in accomplishing their goals online, assists writers in having quality content along with a user-friendly site and advice on how to live a successful and enjoyable life.
Come back tomorrow to see who’s next on the list.
