More than you probably want
to know about Eric
In early 1992, I started taking evening school Graduate courses at U.T. Knoxville, where I learned about the Internet for the first time. Back then the Internet was Gopher, WAIS, USENET, and for the adventurous, Lynx. I was hooked. I've been online for hours almost daily ever since, learning and absorbing everything I can about it. I transformed myself from disinterested sales guy into really interested netgeek, and I loved it. I remember then grad student Mark Andreesen's first distribution of Mosaic 1.0, (Netscape's Great Grandmother), and I was online the day Jerry Yang and David Filo first turned Yahoo loose. Akebono anyone? Back then Jerry used to help me create new Yahoo categories.
I emerged from my grad school period with an odd set of skills perfectly timed for the blossoming Web. A marketing and P.R. background and an obsession and understanding of the nuances of a brand new medium. Today, as then, my area of greatest expertise is in helping new web content to find its natural audience, and vice versa.
My NetPOST service (launched in 1994) was the Internet's first Web site awareness building service, and I now work with FORTUNE 500 clients (though I prefer smaller sites) in the US and abroad.
Lastly, I was one of the 25 people profiled in the book Online Marketing Heroes from Wiley and Sons.
On the home front, my wife Melissa and I have three children (two boys and a girl), assorted animals, and a growing mountain of broken toys in my office.
