Now, who’s this Dave guy anyway?

Thanks for asking! Let’s see… I’ve been in the computer industry since 1980, believe it or not, and have been online since before the beginning of the Internet. Some say that it wasn’t Al Gore but me who actually invented the Internet, but between Bob Metcalfe, Vint Cerf, Jon Postel, Tim Berners-Lee and many others, we all contributed – big steps or little – to the amazing tool it is today.

I have a number of academic credentials if that’s interesting to you, including a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science from the University of California, San Diego, a Master’s in Education from Purdue University, and a Master’s in Business Administration from University of Baltimore, Merrick School of Business. I generally skip the alphabet soup after my name, though.

On the business side, I have created and launched four Internet related startups, the first of which was The Internet Mall. The original one. Long since vanished into obscurity, of course, but I was definitely part of the dot-com bubble and in addition to my own startups I served on the board of a number of different small companies (and continue to do so today) and have worked with various investment and venture capital firms as a due diligence analyst and even an entrepreneur in residence.
