Closing Your Community Right: Jessamyn interviewed

A podcast where Jessamyn is interviewed by Patrick O'Keefe about the experiences around an online community (mlkshk) closing down and what happens afterwards.

The page contains many MetaFilter-related links and a link to the transcript.

#RWModeration
