How I spend my time
A startup in San Francisco that makes the Internet a safer and faster neighborhood. Started in 2005, we're now the largest in the world at what we do. I'm Founder / CEO / Janitor. We're backed by Sequoia Capital and Greylock Partners. I am privileged to work with an amazing team of passionate technologists on some really great stuff. Come work with us!
How I used to spend my time
(For a long time, it was) The world's largest free DNS provider. I started it in 2001 and sold it at the very end of 2009.
A non-profit that I helped start with my collaborator David Weekly. We provide free, unencumbered Internet services to non-commercial entities (currently numbering around 140). Update 2/2007: After years and years of great service we have shut it down. Check out Cernio instead.
I went to college here. I was an Anthropology major. College was good to me and I was good to my college.
I like everything about positively disruptive ideas — from conception and execution, to scaling and building repeatable engines of innovation. This is a never-ending journey.
When did youth sports stop keeping score? What happened to having winners and losers? I'm concerned these seemingly innocuous types of changes will have a profound societal impact over the long-term.
Success requires sacrifice — there's no satisfaction without first knowing pain.
You don't just get to win. It's special. Companies don't just get to win. It ain't like that. It's special. You've got to have a fire in your belly that tells you, "I want to to win in the worst way." (My words paraphrasing the amazing TPHS football coach, Ed Burke)
