Andrew Hyde has a passion for community, writing, travel and startups. He has founded three startups (two failed, one sold, one about travel guides is still kicking with his focus is with being Employee #1 & #143 at Techstars). With roots in freelancing and design, he can hold a conversation about best interface practices as well as how to build cabins with hand tools. He is also a marathoner, Ironman competitor, blogger and event organizer. He started Ignite Boulder, TEDxBoulder, Startup Weekend, a food/tech/music conference boco. Most recently he wrote a book named This Book is About Travel which reached the #1 sales slot for iBooks and Amazon’s travel sections.
His work has been featured in the NYTimes, NBC World News, Washington Post, Boing Boing, Boston Globe, INC, Entrepreneur, Daily Mail, Yahoo! and the Nepal Times, oddly. He has written for Laughing Squid, The Next Web and Read Write Web. He is the author (although mostly in name only) of nine patents with variations of the name “Aggregation of an Aggregation System.” What I’m trying to say is that I just hope you are not reading this through an aggregation system, and then aggregating it.
