Story
Introduction
Michael Buffington is an entrepreneur and super geek. He's been focused on building community and entrepreneur focused companies and projects since 1992, starting with a single line BBS with a 9600 baud modem, followed by companies like Price.com, MeasureMap (acquired by Google), Values of N (acquired byTwitter), and Grockit. He's a frequent speaker at tech and creative conferences. In his spare time, Michael enjoys building Lego robots with his kids, culturing corals in his LED lit reef aquarium, building games, skateboarding, and playing the guitar. He's also obsessed with improving remote team dynamics with a bias towards extreme programming and agile development.

He's using science and accidents to make things as part of the elusive R&D team at LivingSocial.
