The /Messengers is not a band, although it sounds like one. It’s just is the name I dreamed up for my consulting business back in 2007.
I am best known these days for my writing (and the thinking behind it, I hope) at /Message, hence the /Messengers. I am obsessed with social tools, and their impact on business, media, and society. I coined the term “social tools” in 1999, the same year I started blogging, and I haven’t looked back since.
My work is principally oriented toward the theory and practice of social web application design and development, as well as related product strategy (like the activities formerly known as marketing).
I am often asked to bring in other consultants or organizations, which I do gladly and eagerly. So, I consider myself the front man of a constantly shifting collaborative network, a band of doers and thinkers, designers and developers. Sometimes it’s a solo act, sometimes a duo, and when needed a combo. I am having a lot of fun.
