I’ve been an entrepreneur, author, and public speaker for nearly 20 years. In that time, I’ve worked on network performance, big data, cloud computing, startup acceleration, and web monitoring. In 2001, I co-founded web performance startup Coradiant (acquired by BMC in 2011), and since then time I’ve launched Rednod, CloudOps, Bitcurrent, Year One Labs, and several other early-stage companies.
I’m the chair of O’Reilly’s Strata conference; the creator of Bitnorth; and the content chair for the International Startup Festival. I’ve written four books on analytics, technology, and entrepreneurship, including the best-selling Lean Analytics which is being translated into eight languages.
Since Lean Analytics was released, I’ve had many fascinating conversations, both on and off the record, with executives at large organizations who are trying to accelerate the pace of innovation within their organizations. I first explored some of this at the 2013 Lean Startup conference, in a workshop entitled Lean Analytics for Intrapreneurs, and was thrilled by the number people who wanted to dig deeper. Tilt The Windmill is an attempt to do so.
I live in Montreal, Canada, and try to mitigate chronic ADD by writing about far too many things at Solve For Interesting. I’d love to hear from you, either in the form below or on Twitter or LinkedIn.
