Telling technology's story

I connect the dots of today's technology, providing stories and maps that frame industries and help them grow. My current focus is on big data, data science and how businesses can become experimental enterprises.

I often give keynotes, talks and write articles, please get in touch if you're interested in working together. I also advise and mentor startups in the fields of big data and internet of things.

Currently

I'm VP Strategy at Silicon Valley Data Science. This means I'm bringing some of the smartest people together to solve some of the toughest problems in data. I explain and help export the data-driven practices of Silicon Valley to the broader business world.

In addition, I'm a Research Associate at the Leading Edge Forum, a global research and thought leadership community dedicated to helping large organizations become more successful at the intersection between business and information technology.

I was the founding chair of the Strata conference, and for six years chair of OSCON at O'Reilly, and write regularly on O'Reilly Radar and elsewhere. I was Founding Editor of the peer-reviewed journal Big Data.
