I consult with product design/management leadership teams in my areas of expertise:

• Three decades of product and platform innovation in social, mobile, and gaming

• Sr. Product/Platform Designer who is fluent in software engineering techniques and constraints.

Decades of demonstrated ability – in product and executive leadership positions ranging from startups to Fortune 100 companies - to help others think through strategic decisions, helping one process and unpack the complications and identify and think clearly about the core issues at stake.

Industry Leadership - published books [Reputation], public presentation, standards leadership [co-creator of JSON], and IP [patent] creation.


Cohost of the Social Media Clarity podcast, I helped invent online places (also known as Social Media), and consult on building social product strategies.

I know what makes them work or fail, and wrote Building Web Reputation Systems to help.

The current intellectual property system around software sucks. I've been creating and invalidating patents for more than 15 yrs.
