Vroman's Podcast 6: Otis Chandler
For the latest edition of Vroman's Podcast, we're trying something different. Our guest this week isn't an author, but he is among the more important people in the book business today. Otis Chandler is the founder of Goodreads.com, a social networking site for readers. I have a Goodreads account, as do many of my friends. Vroman's has its own group (Big ups to the Vroman's Goodreads group!), and the site continues to evolve, playing host to over 650,000 users, some of whom are both authors and readers.
In this interview, which runs about 26 minutes long, Otis and I talk about the history of Goodreads, the future of social networking sites, and of course, what he's reading right now. In the process, I learned a bit about web design, and I said "I'm curious" about forty times (Seriously. There should be a drinking game or something.).
