Jeffrey Kalmikoff is a partner and the Chief Creative Officer at Threadless/skinnyCorp, the Chicago based site that let's everyone submit t-shirt designs--if you're chosen, you get $2,500. Over at the Web 2.0 Conference in San Francisco last week, we met up with Kalmikoff who gave us the low down on his company, building customer trust and his views on communities motivated by passion instead of profits.
