Wikia Names ex-Gracenote Craig Palmer as CEO from Digital Media Wire

Fast Chat: Craig Palmer, Wikia's new CEO on scaling the company, keeping up with the social Web from AdWeek

I haven't been around here much lately, but I recently found out Wikia has a new CEO as of about a week ago. Supposedly former CEO of Gracenote (which works closely with LyricWiki, BTW).

Anyone know anything about this guy? -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 20 Oct 2011 2:04 PM Pacific

Craig has been around for a little now, they have just been slow to announce it. Not much is out there about him but from what I have seen of his press releases, he likes the social direction Wikia is headed in.--GodPray  21:15,10/20/2011 
Here's the press release from earlier this month. We're all really excited to have Craig on board to help take us to the next level (and he's an excellent whiffleball player). Jen Burton (help forum | blog) 15:53, October 27, 2011 (UTC)
To the next level of what? Should we expect to see a like button on every Message wall comment in the near future?  Monchoman45  Talk  Contribs  Skystone  15:56,10/27/2011 
To the next level of growth (simply put). Jen Burton (help forum | blog) 17:35, October 27, 2011 (UTC)
I was hoping for some info "beyond the press release". Press releases are notoriously biased and full of half-truths. I guess very few veteran Second Lifers visit the Community forums. -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 27 Oct 2011 2:09 PM Pacific
Hi Fandyllic, I'm not sure what kind of information you're looking for here. Craig is a very successful business leader and I'm sure you can find more information about him through simple Google searches. We're not at a point where we're going to publicly discuss long or short term business plans. Jen Burton (help forum | blog) 23:28, October 27, 2011 (UTC)
Google doesn't seem to care very much. Apparently the anthropologist is more notable.  Monchoman45  Talk  Contribs  Skystone  23:30,10/27/2011

(reset indent) Does he have a wikia account? If so what? --Kangaroopowah   Talk  03:42,10/30/2011
