Eric's reputation in the digital media and publishing world needs no introduction… former Managing Partner at Softbank, an early stage investment VC for technology and media start-ups, CEO of Ziff-Davis and most recently, the CEO of the Huffington Post. Eric is attributed with the knack for recognizing potential early on in a company and then leading them to success. Eric is currently partner at Lerer Ventures.

Eric joins Guy Kawasaki on the board and we are looking forward to their guidance , perspective and wisdom as continues to grow and evolve its services in the curation space.

In joining the Advisory Board, Eric Stated " In a world awash with information, well-curated content is increasingly important and I'm excited to advance the industry through working with the team. opens up a whole new way for people to consume information and engage in news that matters."

We see this as a significant step in taking to the next level in social publishing and further shaping the role of individuals as curators or "Editor-in-Chiefs" of their own news sites.
