CommonPlaces’ History

CommonPlaces was originally founded by Ben Bassi, Bill Townsend & Mark Palmer in 1998 to provide hosted, web-based solutions to over 250 colleges and universities. During that time, CommonPlaces also owned innovative sites such as SixDegrees.com, whose patents and technologies were sold to become the basis of LinkedIn.com. In 2003, CommonPlaces entered the market as a premier open-source development firm. Since then, CommonPlaces has helped establish and strengthen the web presence of thousands of successful projects throughout the country.

The name “CommonPlaces” is derived from the Boston Common, located near our original office. Boston Common historically represents a central location for citizens of all backgrounds to meet. Our goal is to build and nurture such venues on the World Wide Web by creating common places for people to gather  as is seen within our customer experience portals and business integrations that we build.
