Introducing Rob: Facilitator of the Bay of Islands Community Platform

Hi everyone!

I’m Rob, the creator and steward of the Bay of Islands Community platform. Developed using the versatile open-source software Discourse, I envision this platform as a vital tool for communication and organization within our community.

My passion lies at the intersection of community building and technology — exploring how digital spaces can foster real-world connections and empower individuals. Beyond my tech interests, I’m deeply committed to social justice, the cooperative movement, and, of course, enjoying the great outdoors!

I’m here not just as a facilitator but as an enthusiastic participant. Whether you want to discuss the latest in tech, exchange ideas about social justice, explore the potential of cooperatives, or share your favorite outdoor experiences, I’m always up for a meaningful conversation. Let’s collaborate, learn, and grow together as a community!
