I don't 'run' PV in the traditional sense. Sure, I handle the server stuff and do all the nerdy shit, but the point isn't to make my own little fiefdom. That's what my blog is for, well, if I ever finish it.
The point of PV is to build community, not rehashing the same mistakes we see in social media we see happening over and over again.
And no one person can make community, but I can use my skills and experience to make it easier for people to contribute to it.
That's why I do it.
