I believe it is Lenn Harley - she was an original investor.  She and other first-members can be found here (those who joined in 2006).

My first thought is Lenn Harley - who is no longer active.  I chatted with her son on FB not long ago. Lenn is doing well.

This made me look back at when I signed up.  It was 2008 when it was free.  Unfortunately I posted once, then just read posts for a while, then forgot about it and came back in 2010 when they had started charging the monthly fee.  Because I hadn't posted in a year I wasn't "grandfathered" in.  But that's okay it's still really worth it.  Wish I would have stuck with it though.  I think I learned about it in a real estate continuing education class I was taking and much of the class signed up for it at the time.  I always thought Lenn Harley was one of the first.

I am shocked...not who I expected.

There are a few busy bodies that act like Active Rain was created for them, and they are the bosses.  They think that "points" give them special powers...and what? now I learn that they are really not the relics?
