These are the technology related businesses I’ve been directly involved with as an officer or director, successes, warts, failures and all.  In fact I learned lots more from the failures that I did from the successes. The great thing is that I keep on making new mistakes all the time and learning from them.This list doesn’t include all of the ones I’ve consulted to as I don’t want to put you to sleep from boredom.
