Ian Patrick Hines

Ian Patrick Hines is the founder and CEO of Hines Digitalan award winning, internationally renowned, conservative digital agency that’s out to beat the left at their own game by out-hustling, out-organizing, and out-fundraising them.

From November 2012 – November 2013, Ian was a NationBuilder Tech Organizer, during which time he became one of the world’s foremost NationBuilder experts. He’s now helping campaigns and organizations get the most out of their nations as a certified NationBuilder Expert & Architect.

Prior to joining NationBuilder, he spent nine years in Maryland politics where he served in nearly every role from field organizer to communications director. In 2003, when online organizing was new and unproven, he managed the GenDean Blog — at just 17-years old — and his 2010 article on the potential impact of Square on political fundraising was featured on The New York Times' Bits Blog.

A fourth-generation Marylander, he currently lives in Severna Park, Maryland with his wife Christy and their three children: Oliver, Moira and Henry.


commented on Is it possible to create a page that is password protected?
You absolutely can. You’d just need to give each of those people one of the permission levels above (ex: make them ‘Members’). Then set the permissions for that page to ‘Member’ and it would be available only to those folks.

It’s not possible, however, to make pages visible only to people with specific tags (i.e., ‘restaurant owner’ and ‘coalition member’) — though you can use tags to facilitate batch updating of a group of people with specific permissions levels.

commented on How do I make "Don't publish my profile on the website" the default?
The reason why the individual record will still have the box checked is that, in some cases, customers have multiple sites and choose to show public profiles on some (but not others).

In those cases, the site-wide setting takes precedence, but on the sites where public profiles are active it’s possible to deactivate them on an individual basis.
