BIO: Clay Shirky

Clay is a provocative new voice on all things Internet: economics and culture, media and community, and the open source movement.

Alex Hunter is an independent digital ninja, brand consultant, company adviser, and micro-venture capital investor.

Alex is also a noted public speaker, appearing at events all over the world.

Previously, Alex served as the global Head of Online Marketing for the Virgin Group. Before joining the Virgin Group, Alex was based in California at Virgin America, where he used the web to build a grassroots marketing campaign to garner public support for Virgin America’s certification process on a tight schedule and even tighter budget. The campaign was covered by Time magazine, CNN, and CNBC, amongst others. He also oversaw the front-end development of Virgin America’s website which has since won several accolades including ad:tech and Webby Award honors.

He has served as an adviser to the Prince of Wales’ Rainforest Trust specifically around the use of social media and engagement to propagate the Trusts’ message.

Alex’s work has been featured in the best-selling book “The Whuffie Factor” by Tara Hunt.

He has been a mentor at the annual SeedCamp venture capital and angel funding event in London, helping young companies refine their marketing and branding before pitching to some of the most influential VCs in the tech community.

Alex currently splits his time between the UK and Northern California.
