John Sack, one of the founders of HighWire Press, engages in a candid conversation with Heather Staines, Senior Strategy Consultant of Community Engagement at Delta Think. In the interview, John talks about community building at HighWire. “The important thing about HighWire to me, was that it was a collective body of very significant scholarly publishers who happened to share in this technology platform. Leadership in this type of environment was more like community organizing, and I intuitively applied this kind of model to all my management roles, but especially to HighWire.”
