Marketing Dissector, PR guy, media consultant, strategic thinker and writer. Online since 1983, launching Internet startups since 1994. Having introduced many tech industry firsts over the years, I'm most interested in what’s really new and why it matters. That's the basis of most good stories.
Interests: I like substance over superficiality and steak over sizzle. I like creatives and artists, eccentric and/or brilliant entrepreneurs and people who think differently. I dislike egomaniacs and narcissists, preferring those who give generously, often with no reason whatsoever. Oh—and I also like marketing, media, public relations, Web 1.0, 2.0, 3.0 and a player to be named later, copywriting, blogging, journalism, entrepreneurship, software development, open source and PR and marketing measurement theory. And, music, astronomy, history, genealogy, nature conservancy, fiction and 19th and early 20th century ephemera. I am a casual user of Linux—but I don’t inhale.
