Meet Bill Sornsin: COO Of The Maven
I met Bill Sornsin when they recruited us to join their platform; then, I found him to be a really interesting guy who was one of the creators of all of the content that came alive on line with the internet boom. I filed this away for a future interview with him and here he is. It is fascinating talking with someone who was one of the pioneers of what we all now take for granted.
Bill began his career in Electrical Engineering and later paused to get his MBA from UCLA, before joining Microsoft in product development. He went on to lead the team that brought MSN to the internet format that we all now recognize.
Then, with Jim Heckman (formerly of Yahoo), The Chairman of The Maven, Bill founded two successful organizations that were the forerunner to the platform you see today on Political Storm. They've created a place where lots of independent publishers from many types of content can flourish. Today The Maven platform has 90 million viewers.
I hope you enjoy meeting Bill and hearing what he has to say. We cover a lot of ground in a short time about him and The Maven's mission. We also go into some of the controversy surrounding Facebook and Google.
Let me know what you think and what you'd like to hear about from Bill and I'll have him back on.
