I'm grateful for the the opportunity to live a life full of creativity, learning, and ongoing improvement.
I'm passionate about:
- culture, purpose, and values-driven companies and teams
- health and wellness
- living each moment deeper
In my worklife, I believe that software is changing the world; I'm CEO and co-founder of C4Media, whose purpose is to empower people influencing innovation in their software development teams. We do this through:
- InfoQ.com - 800,000 unique/visitor month practitioner-written news & content community published in 4 languages. It is equalizing access to trends and innovation across geographic boundaries.
- QCon conferences are annually run software development conferences with 500 - 1000 attendees each in London, New York, San Francisco, New York, Sao Paolo, Beijing, Shanghai, and Tokyo.
My company is completely virtual with 29 full-time members spanning Brazil, US, Canada, Romania, Greece, and China, franchisees in Japan and France, as well as over 150 part time software developers serving as editors in all those regions.
When I was 21 I created TheServerSide.com Java community which also hit 500,000 people/month before it sold to a big bad evil media company where profits ruled over purpose so I quit to start C4Media.
