Story
Introduction
I direct ProjectVRM at Harvard's Berkman Center for Internet & Society. The project fosters development of tools and services that provide customers with means for both independence from, and engagement with, vendors. My new book, The Intention Economy: When Customers Take Charge, published by Harvard Business Review Press, reports on ProjectVRM development work and its implications for the larger economy. I also served as a fellow at Berkman from 2006-2010. As a fellow with UCSB's Center for information Technology & Society, I am working on studies of infrastructure and its overlap with the Internet. As Senior Editor of Linux Journal I have been studying and writing about open source and free software since 1996. I also co-authored The Cluetrain Manifesto, a business bestseller that came out in 2000 and was followed a decade later by a 10th Anniversary edition. I also have more than 40,000 pictures up on Flickr, including many thousands shot out the windows of airplanes.
