I've been blogging about tech and the future of the internet since 2004. During that time I've witnessed sites like YouTube spring from seemingly nothing to become black swans and game changers. Blogging about the internet for more than 8 years has given me a good perspective on cycles and emergent trends. I help produce FOSS (Free and Open Source Software), I'm an activist, collaborator and I believe in the freedom of information.
While at Boulder Digital Works, I learned the value of rapidly prototyping ideas. Building things focuses the idea, offers new insight and can quickly indicate whether or not it's worth pursuing. I'm taking the same lessons to work with me as I try to define my role in a way that adds "maker" style values to the advertising process.
