The Web has been a part of my DNA since the night I dialed in to Telnet with a 14.4 baud modem and discovered IRC (Internet Relay Chat). From that evening in 1994, I became obsessed with how human culture could be re-shaped by the speed, accessibility and freedom of information. My interests include digital media, business, space exploration and sci-fi. I’ll use this space to post about those things, and try to predict what the future might look like.
My professional bio:
Nathan T. Wright began his career in the advertising agency world, where he developed digital media strategy for clients of all shapes and sizes. His interest in social networks led him to entrepreneurship and the formation of Lava Row, a
Des Moines-based consulting and education firm.
Nathan helps large corporations and brands navigate the ever-shifting digital media space with emphasis on training, best practices and business value. In addition to his consulting work, he frequently speaks about technology topics at industry conferences, professional organizations and universities.
A few of Lava Row’s clients include Cargill, Wellmark Blue Cross and Blue Shield, Hy-Vee and Veridian Credit Union.
In 2010 he taught Internet Marketing as an adjunct instructor at Drake University. Nathan is active in the Des Moines technology, start-up and entrepreneur community. He co-pilots Uppward, an iPhone travel application, as a side project.
Nathan graduated from Iowa State University in 1999 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts. He once attempted to sell his soul on eBay, earning him 15 minutes of worldwide fame and mockery. He aspires to one day be distinguished enough to wear a monocle.
