Digital communities have exponentially grown in importance ever since most of the world went remote. Basically every popular online forum, message board, chat app, and other online social aggregators were created before this new normal. Many of these platforms lack sufficient organization or are just outdated for a fully remote environment. If society continues to work fully or hybrid remote, then digital communities need to be optimally designed for a remote experience.

Tom Kleinpeter and Viraj Mody are 2 co-founders of Common Room, a platform made to bring communities together and developed in today’s remote environment. Common Room is in its early stages of development and its details have remained secretive. In today’s episode Tom discusses the challenges with current social platforms, what we can expect from the first version of Common Room, some of its underlying technology and unique features, and how his team plans to promote and grow Common Room with organizations and consumers.

Previously, Viraj led engineering organizations at Convoy and Dropbox, helping both companies scale their teams and products. Viraj was also a founding engineer at Audiogalaxy, where he worked alongside Tom, which was acquired by Dropbox. Previously, Tom was a Principal Engineer at Dropbox, and before that the CTO at Audiogalaxy and FolderShare.
