One of my favorite shows of all time was The West Wing. Â Martin Sheen played President Bartlett and one of his catch phrases was asking his staff, “What’s next?” when he was ready to move on from the current topic.
As I start 2011, I decided to move on from my job as the technical lead for AIM and AOL Lifestream, and I am ready for “what’s next.” Â Back in November, I reconnected with a friend of mine who works at Clearspring. Â HeÂ asked me if I wanted to come by and see what was happening at Clearspring.
Well one thing lead to another, and I am super excited to join the team at Clearspring as their director of product for AddThis. Â I am really looking forward to working with the team at Clearspring, lead by Hooman Radfar. Â AddThis currently has 1 billion monthly unique users and is used by 7.2 million publishers. Â Right before Christmas the team did a great job on releasing a set of analytic tools for publishers.
I can’t wait for what’s next at Clearspring and working with the team at delivering great experiences to both users and the publishers.
