Douglas' career path lies at the intersection between mobile technology and new/social media. He started by building digital communities for mobile software developers prior to the web 2.0 boom, and leveraged this experience to help found a mobile tech new media startup. Douglas spent the next three years building RIM's blogging program as part of their nascent social media team. Adventures and tomfoolery cropped up along the way. Douglas is often left-handed, but rarely sinister. He is a product guy at heart.
