I’m the Startup Lead for Microsoft Australia. Basically that means my job is helping startups. With anything. I debug apps, web services, and business models. I’ll help you find customers, employees or funding. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to tell me about your business!
I’m a web standardista from way back (I ran the Web Standards Group meetings in Melbourne from 2004-2006) and gave presentations at Web Directions South, Edge of the Web, Microsoft’s REMIX10 and New Zealand’s Webstock conference on the topic of The Open Web.
With support from some amazing people, I used to run an industry event called Webjam to provide a platform for people to show off their innovations built on the web and web technologies.
I’m a passionate advocate of open web technologies but I try to temper that by actually knowing about those technologies — preferably from having used them.
I’m available for coffee, drinks, lunch, and hearing about you.
