The Origins

WIMP was established in April of 2011 by Joshua Simmons and Melissa Geissinger (New Skin Media) in Santa Rosa, California. What started as a modest dream for two young entrepreneurs / small business owners transformed into a niche that was in a higher demand than they realized. Web professionals around Sonoma County were just itching for an environment where they could kick back and meet like-minded (fair to say geekier than average?) individuals and WIMP seemed like it would fulfill that need. Since its inception, WIMP has grown to boast a very active Facebook group, podcast series (WIMP Talk Format or WTF), and dynamic programming.

You might be a Wimp if…

  • You want to join a group with like-minded geeks with experience in the internet industry
  • You are a student or pro that is looking for extended educational opportunities
  • You want access to commonly needed resources like contract boilerplates and rate sheets
  • You are looking for a full time job or freelance gigs.
