GEA Retreaters: Be very excited for our keynote speaker – Eric Marcoullier

10 Oct

Here is a short teaser bio of our keynote speaker:

Eric Marcoullier co-founded the pioneering games site IGN.com in 1996 (IPO in 2000, acquired by NewsCorp in 2005) and the first distributed social network MyBlogLog in 2005 (acquired by Yahoo in 2007). He moved to Boulder in 2008 and launched social data aggregator Gnip and OneTrueFan (recently acquired by BigDoor).  During his frequent trips to SF, LA and NYC, he likes to see as much live music as possible and eat street food. Eric pines for simpler times when he played video games and ultimate frisbee.
