Web 3.0 Will Not Resemble What You’re Currently Seeing on the Web According to Author David Siegel
Co-hosts Brad Forsythe and Ray Schilens interview David Siegel, author, consultant,
and investor focusing on the future of technology, the Internet, and business.
Always on the cutting edge, David is credited with being one of the first
entrepreneurs and designers in the emerging web site design business, designing
his first site in 1993. He started blogging in 1994 and is likely one of the
first five people to start blogging. He started Studio Verso, one of the first
web-design and strategy firms in the same year. David has been writing books
about the Web since 1995: Creating Killer Web Sites (Macmillan, 1995;
translated into 16 languages), Secrets of Successful Web Sites (Pearson, 1997),
Creating Killer Web Sites II (Pearson, 1999), Futurize Your Enterprise (Wiley,
1999), Pull (Penguin, 2010).
David has an undergraduate degree in
applied mathematics from the University of Colorado at Boulder (1982) and a
master’s degree in computer science from Stanford (1986). He worked at Pixar
Studios one year before going into business for himself. He has designed or
produced three of the world’s top-50 typefaces (in terms of sales) and started
designing web sites in 1993. He has taught graduate design courses and seminars
in marketing and business. He started one of the first online design and strategy
firms, Studio Verso, which he sold to KPMG in 1999.
David has been lecturing and speaking about the
Web since 1995, and about the semantic web since 1998. He has delivered over
100 speeches on the Internet and business. Since 2000, David has been an active
angel investor, advisor, and board member. He is chairman of LTR.com, based in
New York City, and Primoris Brick and Paver Company in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. He
also lectures on dark chocolate and has been doing professional chocolate
