I’m an author of books. I write about ideas and how they work.
I post 2 or 3 times a week. Since 2003, there have been over 1400 posts. Popular topics include creativity, writing well, managing and speaking. My 50 best posts of all time are a great place to start.
Many posts are born from reader comments and questions.
My work has appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, The Economist, The Guardian, Wired magazine, National Public Radio, The Huffington Post and other media. I taught at the University of Washington, blog for Harvard Business and BusinessWeek, and appear as an expert on various subjects on CNN, CNBC and MSNBC.
I’ve authored four popular books:
- Making Things Happen
- The Myths of Innovation
- Confessions of a Public Speaker
- Mindfire: Big Ideas for Curious Minds (a ‘best of’ collection of essays from this blog)
I worked at Microsoft from 1994 to 2003, mostly on Internet Explorer 1.0 to 5.0 (not 6). From 2010 to 2012 I worked as a team leader for Automattic on WordPress.com. I’m back to being a full time author and speaker. This short interview describes me well.
