Dave Pell’s been a writer since day one. Even as he got busy with school and startups, nonprofits and the nonstop lifestyle that comes with raising children, it’s the one thing he always returns to, and the way he documents the changing world around him. “Writing is the behavior pattern that’s existed through my whole life,” he tells MailChimp. He’s sitting behind the desk in San Francisco’s SoMa district where he puts together his popular daily news email, NextDraft, and thinking anxiously about how he’d rather be checking the real-time reports of the campaign he just sent out to his many readers. The “Internet’s Managing Editor” has a certain responsibility to uphold, after all.
