In 2000, Jason Grigsby got his first mobile phone. He became obsessed with how the world could be a better place if everyone had access to the world's information in their pockets. When his wife, Dana, met him, he had covered the walls of his apartment with crazy mobile dreams. To this day, he remains baffled that she married him.
Those mobile dreams hit the hard wall of reality--WAP was crap. So Jason went to work on the Web until 2007, when the iPhone made it clear the time was right. He joined forces with the three smartest people he knew and started Cloud Four.
Since cofounding Cloud Four, he has had the good fortune to work on many fantastic projects, including the Obama iPhone App. He is founder and president of Mobile Portland, a local nonprofit dedicated to promoting the mobile community in Portland, Oregon.
Jason is a sought‐after speaker and consultant on mobile. If anything, he is more mobile obsessed now than he was in 2000 (sorry, sweetheart!).
You can find him blogging at http://cloudfour.com; on his personal site, http://userfirstweb.com; and on Twitter as @grigs. Please say hello!
