About Eric Weiss:

I’ve been obsessed with technology since I was a child. Back in the ’80s, I used to tear apart my dad’s old 486 PC so I could play video games. I was a hacker during my rebellious teen years. In high school, I worked at an internet service provider and helped build the internet in my city. In college, I performed research at a high-performance super-computing lab. I’ve spent the last fifteen years developing software products from every angle. I’ve been a developer, systems architect, project manager, product manager, consultant, and Chief Technology Officer. I LOVE this stuff.

As a product manager, I helped build and launch the Sony Playstation 3. I spent ten years building analytics platforms driving Qualcomm’s $9 billion technology licensing business. I spent five years as CTO of a technology company, driving product strategy through data collection, analysis, and experimentation.
