I have also founded a number of startups. I built a real-time search engine at Collecta, an online chess community at ChessparkYou might be surprised to learn that these used the same technology under the hood. , and a network of internet radio stations at Greenwitch Internet Radio.

I am still involved in this work today with Daala. All these efforts exist to create a common, royalty-free, and open standard for multimedia on the Internet.
