Dave Schumaker

Community Editor and Manager
Before he ever set foot in a tech publication's newsroom, Dave could be found gallivanting around deserts of the American Southwest as a geologist, searching for fossilized algae. He spent time breaking rocks open with hammers and writing science papers with ridiculously long titles that made no sense, such as Environmental Conditions of the Tecopa Basin during the Pleistocene based on fossilized diatom assemblages below the Bishop Tuff. Who even knows what that means? More recently, he's been involved in building and managing technology communities for a variety of startups and organizations. When he's not making friends in our comment sections by replying to everyone or banning the occasional troll, he can usually be found talking about baseball or playing lots of Civilization V and Kerbal Space Program.
