David likes to think of himself as having worked in technology since he first sat down in front of a Commodore 64 at the ripe old age of 6, but he definitely has been getting paid for it for the past 14 years. In that time he has founded three companies, filled a plaque with ship-it badges from Microsoft, and generally been astounded at the myriad ways the Internet gives us to waste time. He most recently worked at Microsoft on a variety of teams including Windows Client, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Exchange and IP Ventures, and has been CEO of <a href="http://hark.com/" target="_hplink">Hark</a> almost since co-founding it in 2008. His passions are new markets and digital media, and Heaven help you if you get him starting to talk about them. David holds a B.A. from Dartmouth College.
