"the Bad Boy of Social CRM", a title he gave himself and no one but Karl
actually uses to describe him. So, feel free to mock him openly.
2000-2003, Karl worked for a dot.com
in Seattle that once had a bigger
market value than the combined GDP of any three Central African nations
you care to mention. Before the NASDAQ crashed, he was a paper dot.com
From 2003 to 2008 Karl taught English in Seoul,

after the dot.com
implosion. Karl eventually got his fill of Asia, rice,
and banana milk and returned to his old career.

major Canadian daily newspaper and authored four non-fiction books about
the Internet. He's written for the CBC, Toronto's Eye Magazine, the
