What Have You Done?

You may have heard my name in connection with some of the following items. These aren't exhaustive lists, just some of the things that you actually may have heard of, and a few things you almost certainly haven't.

Companies I Started

  • I started a company called Xigo with Lenny Raymond and Dan Bornstein. Xigo built something like a real-time program trading system that was usable by regular people. As of this writing, the system is still in use as part of E*Trade's backend, and probably a few other places too.
  • With Neal Stephenson and Lenny and a few other people, I started a company called Subutai Corporation. Subutai built an online publishing system, and created Foreworld, which is now a highly ramified transmedia property including novels, comic books, and short stories, the oldest and most well-known of which is the novel The Mongoliad.
  • With Jordan Weisman, Lenny, and Kev Ray, I started a toy company called Smith and Tinker, to make internet-connected toys.
  • With Lenny and Chris Foley, I started Totomic, Inc., where we built technology to revolutionlize the real estate industry. (They didn't like it.)
