"A Child has no trouble believing the unbelievable, nor does the genius or the madman. It's only you and I, with our big brains and our tiny hearts, who doubt and overthink and hesitate." ~ Steven Pressfield

Be a child, genius and madman in 2014!

The child in each of us provides the innocence, wonder, and curiosity that drives learning, unless the System beats it out of us.  Resist!

Normally you can change your account email. But I believe you're meant to (shock, horror) talk to a human if you get locked out :) Byron should be able to sort you out (bjones@moz, or glob on #bmo)

Introduction
I love technology and believe that the Internet is deeply impacting mankind. I got started on the Net before there was a web browser, founded a couple of technology startups, led eBay's Platform Solutions Group in Europe, launched a consulting firm helping entrepreneurs with their strategy & operations, invested into early-stage tech startups, led Mozilla Labs, created Mozilla's accelerator program WebFWD, headed up Mozilla's Office of the Chair and invested into social impact organizations around the globe at Google.org. I also created the non-profit organization Mentor for Good, the GyShiDo (Get Your S%#& Done) movement and publish the opinionated The Heretic newsletter.

Today I work with large and small organizations on building entrepreneurial ecosystems, establish open innovation practices and design thinking inside companies and support entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs all around the world. I frequently speak and write about the magic which happens at the intersection of entrepreneurship, technology & global impact. As a trained Co-Active executive coach I work with clients on achieving their full leadership potential. Most of all - I love to work with entrepreneurs who are making things better: Be it as a consultant, board member or mentor.
