My name is Richard Giles. I’ve been involved in online communities since the BBS days in the eighties, and on the Internet since 1994 when I built corporate websites, lectured about online commerce at Curtin University, and sold corporate Internet connections. I have since worked for Sun Microsystems, authored the Podcasting Pocket Guide
and How to Use Flickr: The Digital Photography Revolution
, won an award for podcasting, and launched Scouta and Recommendation Ventures which were listed in BRW’s Australia’s Top 10 Web Applications in 2008.
Called “the network marketer” by BRW, I am currently working as the Strategy Director at Adapptor, on the Library Board of Western Australia, and present at a number of events about technology and its impact.
