Who is Jon Udell?

Jon Udell is an author, information architect, software developer, and

new media innovator. His 1999 book, Practical Internet Groupware,

helped lay the foundation for what we now call social software. Udell

has been a software developer at Lotus, was BYTE Magazine's executive

editor and Web maven, and has worked as an independent

consultant.

A hands-on thinker, Udell's analysis of industry trends has always

been informed by his own ongoing experiments with software,

information architecture, and new media.

From 2002 to 2006 he was InfoWorld's lead analyst, author of the weekly

Strategic Developer column, and blogger-in-chief. During his InfoWorld

tenure he also produced a monthly series of screencasts about software, and

a weekly series of audio interviews with innovators.

In January 2007 he joined Microsoft as a technical evangelist. In his

new role he'll continue to explore and explain a broad portfolio of

technologies, both inside and outside Microsoft. He aims to

build bridges not only within the technical community but also, and

crucially, across the chasm that divides elite technologists from

everybody else.
