Sean Power
co-founder, Watching Websites

Website | @seanpower

Sean spends way too much time on the computer and needs to get out more. He has worked as a web systems administrator since the mid 90s, has worked with online communities for companies such as MTV Northern Europe, and helped users reduce the headaches of managing and monitoring web infrastructures through Coradiant, a web performance monitoring vendor. Prior to working at Coradiant, he was technical reviewer for the Addison-Wesley book Troubleshooting Linux Firewalls.

Sean is now working as community gardener for Akoha, a company pioneering the industry of “social games”, where he handles all things community and analytics. This puts a smile on his face, and lets him sleep better at night.

He completes his full plate by working on a book for O’Reilly entitled Watching Websites.

You can find out more about him on, hear him ramble away on, or read about other stuff he’s thinking of at his website,
