Life in the startup lane.

I help launch technology startups, and I provide due diligence for venture firms. I've worked in Web-based collaboration, social software and new media since 1996, when I was a founder of the first venture-funded social software company, ScreenPorch (later renamed Caucus Systems). Later, I started Mighty Acorn and Suplion and was the President of Cyclonic. More recently, I helped launch Seedwiki and Connectbeam, and I'm now involved in launching an early stage startup called KnowledgePay.
