Welcome Kale and Patrick!

Posted by Otis Chandler on March 15, 2010
Goodreads has two new very talented people as of two weeks ago: Patrick Brown and Kale McNaney. When you see them around the site please give them a big welcome!

Here is a little more about them:

Patrick is the Community Manager at Goodreads. He's responsible for all sorts of things, including being a head librarian, working with authors to grow the Author Program, answering member questions, and growing the Goodreads community. Before coming to Goodreads, Patrick was an independent bookseller, working at Book Soup and Vroman's Bookstore. He has a B.A. in Cinema & Media Studies from the University of Chicago and an MFA in film production from USC. Go figure. He likes books that challenge his own world view, as well as books that make him laugh.

Kale is a software engineer who loves to ride his bike and hang out in the LA sun. He graduated from MIT where he learned to assemble bits into interesting and useful tools. Kale likes to read nonfiction books about science, logic and philosophy by authors like Douglas R. Hofstadter and Daniel Dennett. His favorite book is Catch-22 by Joseph Heller. When he's not writing a test case or implementing a new Goodreads feature, you can find Kale on his porch reading or riding down the Santa Monica bike path.

mlady_rebecca Welcome Patrick and Kale! Don't worry, most of us don't bite, although we will endlessly pester you with ideas for site upgrades. *g*

Harry Welcome, to both of the new folks. Patrick Brown may be able to help me on a quest I just initiated. I am searching for a copy of a movie made in 1914 by the Maxwell motor car Co.
