Hi! My name is Zak Greant and I've tired of writing things in the third person (at least for today.) I own a strategic consultancy called Foo Associates. The Foo team helps organizations adapt to and thrive on the electronic frontier. We're a tiny shop, but we have great clients (like eZ Systems, Canonical, the Mozilla Foundation & Navarik.)

The Net has been a part of my daily life for more than a decade now - most of my adult life, in fact. After dropping out of high school, then cooking school, the Net was a gateway to tremendous opportunity and wonder. Like all tools, it wasn't the Net that mattered so much - instead it was what the Net let people do that was the true alchemy.

I've been an active participant in many Free Software/Open Source communities, from PHP (my first love, who I still have the occasional fling with) to MySQL (where I worked as MySQL AB's first community advocate) to volunteering with the Free Software Foundation's License Compliance Lab.
