Life goals include never being a charlatan and peaking sometime around the year 2050.
I live in Seattle with my wife, two kids, two cats, and two chickens. I work at Amazon Web Services, focused on making data easier for people to access and use.
I blog about organizations, emergence, the Internet, food, democracy, art, religion, policy, music, governance, surfing, and data among other things. My blog is called Manso. If you want to know why, you have to ask me.
For shorter thoughts, I’m @jedsundwall on Twitter.
I often give presentations on how organizations can use emerging technologies to fulfill their missions.
