James Billmaier has devoted his professional life to predicting how emerging technologies will impact our lives in the future. To his credit, he has been astonishingly accurate.
He is a founding partner of Charge Northwest, an electric vehicle infrastructure advisory and software integration company. Most recently, Billmaier served as chairman and CEO of Melodeo, Inc., the leading cloud-based media platform company, which was acquired in June 2010 by Hewlett-Packard. A 30-year technology veteran and inventor, he holds more than 80 granted and pending patents.
Billmaier has served as chairman and CEO of three companies, including Asymetrix, which he led to a successful IPO in 1998, and Digeo, Inc., which he started with Microsoft legend, Paul Allen. While CEO of Digeo, Billmaier became the only entrepreneur to win back-to-back EMMY awards for technical achievement. Prior to moving to the Pacific Northwest, Billmaier was vice president and general manager of Sun Microsystems’ Networking Software Division, where he led the development and marketing teams behind Sun’s first Internet offerings. Billmaier has made a lifelong career out of studying American ingenuity and innovation. All that he has learned about technology’s effect on our lives and society informs this important and timely book.
