My focus is the future of work, and the tectonic forces pushing business, media, and society into an unclear and accelerating postnormal era. I consider myself a web anthropologist and futurist.
I started blogging in 2000, and along the way I coined the terms ‘social tools’ and ‘hashtag’. I have over 250 stitches in my head, mostly from brain surgery.
I have presented at numerous conferences and events worldwide, including Web 2.0, Enterprise 2.0, GigaOM Net:Work, Reboot, Next, Mesh, Shift, Lift, SIBOS, Defrag, SxSW, and TEDxMidAtlantic.
I am working on a book about the future of work and our place in it called Leanership: A New Way Of Work.
In October 2013, I launched Chautauqua, is an open community organized to understand and channel new ways of working together, to redefine our connection to work and each other, and ultimately, through that, to change the world.
I am the lead researcher for social business and the future of work at GigaOM Research. My writing here is my own, and does not reflect the views or opinions of GigaOM.
