Biz Stone was born in Boston, Massachusetts in 1974. For the past decade, Stone has been developing large scale projects that facilitate the open exchange of information. He is the Co-founder of Twitter, Inc and advisor to several technology startups. Recruited by Google in the early 2000's, Stone met and collaborated with Evan Williams--the pair would later exit the search company to work on their own startup. Twitter was founded in 2007. Stone has been recognized by Time Magazine as one of the most influential persons in the world. After stepping away from his day-to-day role at Twitter Inc., Biz helped incubate Medium and made some investments through Obvious. In March of 2013, Biz announced his latest startup, Jelly. Biz is co-founder and CEO of Jelly which has not yet revealed product details.
Now, Stone tells fascinating, pivotal, and personal stories from his early life and his careers at Google and Twitter, sharing his knowledge about the nature and importance of ingenuity today. In Biz's world:
-Opportunity can be manufactured
-Great work comes from abandoning a linear way of thinking
-Creativity never runs out
-Asking questions is free
-Empathy is core to personal and global success
In his upcoming book, Things a Little Bird Told Me: Confessions of the Creative Mind, he also addresses failure, the value of vulnerability, ambition, and corporate culture.
