Founder and CEO of Discogs Kevin Lewandowski started the site in 2000 as a way to catalogue his drum n bass and techno records. Soon, others started cataloging their collections on Discogs and today, the result is a worldwide collaborative project of seven million recordings. It has become a definitive music reference, as well as a place to buy and sell music. Lewandowski will be discussing the evolution and history of the site, why it has never become corporate in the way eBay has, despite being an important marketplace, his relationship with the tech/startup world, how the Wiki element of the site works, and what he thinks about people buying up limited edition releases to "flip" them on Discogs
