Frank Chimero: The Mavenist

Frank Chimero (YG8) and friend Rob Giampietro began an unconventionally conversational blog in May. The Mavenist: The Occasional Back-and-Forth Blog is composed of a very precise formula. As Chimero puts it: “Two people, preferably friends, collaborate on a blog post by being available to one another. One begins by sharing something interesting, then commenting on it. This begins a dialogue. The second person then reciprocates with something they like which follows the thought-path of the previous item. The two go back-and-forth ten times and see where the flow of the conversation takes them.” This stream-of-consciousness blog-game offers a look inside random associations formed in conversation via the world wide web.
