"Billy Goating" with my friend Andy down the steep part of Thunder Saddle at Kirkwood last weekend. The cliff face at the top is steep enough that you can touch the hill with your hand standing uptight on the snow (dig those edges in!) - this is why you see the big jump turns, it's all gravity :-)

Introduction
The postings on this site are my own and don't necessarily represent Cognizant’s positions, strategies or opinions.

Currently Vice President Consulting - Customer Solutions Practice for Cognizant Business Consulting.

Ted has been a software developer, worked in product development, marketing and as a senior executive for both public and privately held companies. For the past several years Ted has been a part of consulting firms Open-First and The Conversation Group, advising companies on the way that mobile and social technologies will change their products, companies, and industries. Amongst other activities, Shelton developed a new participatory media platform called The Personal Bee, which was acquired by Technorati in early 2007. From 2000-2004 he served as Chief Strategy Officer of Borland Software. Other roles include Senior VP of Sales and Marketing for early Internet pioneer, WhoWhere (acquired by Lycos), and interim CMO of the Symbian Foundation.
