Jerry is the founder of REX, the Relationship Economy eXpedition, a private, collaborative inquiry into the next economy. More broadly, he is a pattern finder, lateral thinker, Gladwellian connector, facilitator and explorer of the interactions between technology, society and business. He was a technology analyst fortunate to be on duty when the Internet showed up. He’s been widely quoted in the major media and greatly enjoys public speaking. He also acts as a technology advisor to startups, ranging from Twine and CoTweet (acquired by ExactTarget) to Evernote, TheBrain, Socialtext and Seedwiki. During the dot-boom days, Jerry was an advisor to eGroups (now YahooGroups) and Pyra (now Blogger, part of Google).
