authonomy is a niche community site for writers, readers and publishers. A complex and exciting project, incorporating elements of crowd sourcing, community management, moderation and reputation systems, authonomy now receives millions of pageviews each month. You can here more about this project in these two radio interviews.
I was part of a small team that conceived and developed authonomy at HarperCollins Publishers in London. Launched in 2008, the talent-spotting site kick-started the careers of several debut authors, and in 2010 won the British Book Industry Award for Innovation.
