Participate: New community/social media tools company

My friend Dan Pacheo’s announcing today that he’s launch a new company– Participata–to sell, create and install community and social media tools, based on the code he and his team created for Bakotopia and other Bakersfield, CA newspaper sites owned by The Californian.
The case studies are clear and well laid out and Dan and team have a history of getting things done–and innovating in an accessible way, so this is good news for everyone looking to make the development process a little easier and more open–And another feather in the cap of The Californian for finding an innovative way to capitalize on their investment–sure beats talking about doing an IPO!
Susan sez: Oh, and they are hiring a Denver-based product manager, Link here.
