Esther Dyson

Esther Dyson's website (official or not) http://www.edventure.com/edventure/esther.cfm
subjects Esther Dyson writes about e-Business, Information Systems
Esther Dyson's profile chairman of EDventure Holdings (www.edventure.com), which publishes the influential monthly technology-industry newsletter, Release 1.0 ("the first good look at technology that matters"), and sponsors the industry's premier annual conference, PC (Platforms for Communication) Forum in the US (March 24 to 26, 2004). In addition to writing several issues of Release 1.0 each year and overseeing the rest, Dyson also writes a fortnightly column for the New York Times syndicate (Release 3.0), which also appears in EDventure's online newsletter, The conversation continues. Finally, she has just started a blog, Release 4.0 (http://release4.blogspot.com/).
Dyson spends her time discovering the inevitable and promoting the ideally possible. As an active investor and commentator, she focuses on emerging technologies and business models (currently social software, artificial intelligence, the Internet, wireless applications and identity management), emerging markets (Eastern Europe) and emerging companies (see below). In 1994, she had already explored the impact of the Net on intellectual property (among other things, why many software products are now turning into online services). In 1997, she wrote a book on the impact of the Net on individuals' lives, Release 2.0: A design for living in the digital age. She remains an active player in discussions and policy-making concerning the Internet and society.

In addition, she donates time and money as a trustee to emerging organizations (Bridges.org, the National Endowment for Democracy and the Eurasia Foundation). She recently finished a two-year-term as founding chairman of ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, the international agency charged with setting policy for the Internet's core infrastructure (technical standards and the Domain Name System) independent of government control. Now she sits on its "reform" committee, dedicated to defining a role for individuals in ICANN's decision-making and governance structures.

After graduating from Harvard in economics, Dyson began her serious career in 1974 as a fact-checker for Forbes and quickly rose to reporter. In 1977 she joined New Court Securities as "the research department", following Federal Express and other start-ups. After a stint at Oppenheimer covering software companies, she moved to Rosen Research and in 1983 bought the company from her employer Ben Rosen, and renamed it EDventure Holdings.

The daughter of an English physicist and a Swiss mathematician, Dyson started traveling in Eastern Europe in 1989 and eventually helped to fill the small but vital vacuum at the intersection of Eastern Europe, high-tech and venture capital, even as she remains active in the US and Western Europe.
