Description

Kirupa Dot Com, also known as Kirupa Chinnathambi, runs the hugely popular Flash and  web development community named after him.  He's recently joined the Expression Blend team as a PM, and is working on an interesting secret project you'll be hearing more about after MIX.

Nishant sat down with him to learn about the history of Kirupa.com.  This story is pretty fascinating; he started the site in 1999 using Frontpage while he was a high school student before joining M.I.T., and still runs it with FPSE and vBulletin.  He shares some interesting insights about how he built the community slowly and steadily to more than 100,000 registered members.

If you have any question for Kirupa, the forums at Kirupa.com are the best place to ask, but you can also leave comments for Kirupa here.
