I began working on Ypulse when it was the labor of love of Anastasia Goodstein. Anastasia is a writer with a passion for issues regarding youth and technology. She began Ypulse as a personal project to address these issues, and it grew from there.
For several years, I served as the de facto webmaster of Ypulse. I did extensive custom development and programming on the site, designed and built various secondary sites, and migrated the whole thing from Movable Type (ick!) to WordPress.
During that time, Ypulse went from a blog created and generated by one person, to a pretty significant force in the youth market and those interested in understanding how young people were interacting with technology.
Anastasia eventually moved on to greener pastures, and Ypulse became more of a market research firm. But, it was a great experience to work on a website where the founder had such a personal connection to and passion for her subject.
