It’s been a little while since I last got the chance to sit down and write here. But for the last 18 months or so I’ve been immersed in a new project that is called Quid. Quid is the company I started back in Dec 2009, it is now at 60 people and we’re doing some pretty amazing things with data, mathematics and visualization. At Quid we are building a global intelligence platform, a place where open source intelligence is collected, structured and visualized to help people understand and make better decisions about the complex world we live in. It’s been an interesting transition out of the academic world and into the world of startups, products and venture capital. But it has been a move that has allowed me to scale up an awesome team, raise a significant amount of money and engage directly with real world problems. Now that Quid is coming up to it’s 2 year mark I hope that I will get more time to sit and write here and share some of my thoughts, ideas and theories that are driving what we are doing here at Quid. Check out Quid.com for more information about what we are doing.
