Ten Years of NationBuilder

Here’s a piece of NationBuilder trivia that I didn’t know until today: Jim Gilliam, NationBuilder’s founder, wrote the first lines that would become NationBuilder on Halloween 2009.

That was about a year after Barack Obama’s use of technology in the 2008 U.S. presidential election put the power of “digital organizing” on the world’s radar, and about three years before I joined the company in November 2012. Now, it seems like a lifetime ago.
