About Mark Blair

My name is Mark Blair and I am a coffee drinking, web-developing sociologist from Sonoma County, California. I’ve been following the growth of social media since the late 80’s and obtained my degree in Sociology from Sonoma State University in the early 90’s. From there, I went on to co-found Pacific Web, a web development company with a special emphasis on building community-oriented websites. I continue to do consulting, development and marketing for select clients under the banner of Blairworks.
