I am Zach Beauvais – a writer and content strategist who likes to help people tell their stories. I came from the world of the web—writing here and there on places like ReadWriteWeb and ZDNet—and spent a few years as a community person at Talis for the emerging technology community of the Semantic Web.

My job titles have worked their way through guest author to evangelist and community manager, and—most fun so far—editor. From podcasting and writing, to creating community engagement plans for an incubated startup, I’ve tended to work around content and people, but try to keep my eye on big ideas.

I tweet, flick, and undertake other webby verbs now and then.
