WIth CEO Rick Brush, I'm about to launch The WaytoWellville @WaytoWellville, the first project of [Health Initiative Coordinating Council]]. It's a contest to create and measure the impact of broad community-wide health-production programs (not just "care") in five small communities across the US. It comprises five places, five metrics (e.g. per capita health costs, transitions to diabetes, high-school graduation rates), five years. The premise is that interacting, critical-density programs will have a visible impact that one-off interventions don't achieve. 

Beyond that, I spend most of my time exploring new space, health and IT start-ups and technologies, writing about them and actively (and with full disclosure) investing in some of them. I love what I do and I love all the travel it entails! Board seats include 23andMe, Eventful, Luxoft, Meetup, PA Consulting, Personal Inc., Voxiva, XCOR, WPP Group, Yandex. Also Long Now Foundation, Sunlight Foundation, Personal Genome Project, WEF Global Agenda Council on Fostering Entrepreneurship. 

Specialties: the Accountable Net, IP and telco policy, identity management, social software, Central and Eastern Europe, start-ups, semantic tools, mapping tools, foundation governance, board experience (esp. "corporate regime change"), commercial space, general aviation.

Education: Harvard BA, Yuri Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center completion certificate.
