Welcome to my blog

I believe we are entering a new era of innovation and disruption that is being fueled by exponential technologies and challenged by our centuries-old linear models of organization.

I know this because it has been my life’s work and I have put all of this down in my recently published book, Tip of the Spear: Our Species and Technology at a Crossroads.

I have spent 30 years at the center of technology’s evolution and adoption across the world. I have formed companies in spaces that didn’t exist prior to starting the business. I have succeeded – in varying ways and degrees – in most, and failed in some. I have been on the front lines of the very complex and difficult process of building real companies. I have put my company’s payroll on my VISA and I have raised millions in start-up capital.

With my recent work I have come to appreciate that some of the best technologies, innovations and breakthroughs will come from places in our global economy where we least expect.

These are my stories from the crossroads of technology and humanity.
