My name is Mike. I live in London with my wife Caroline and our daughter Marla Mae.
I dropped out of high school when I was fifteen to work at a start-up. I've worked in technology ever since. Most recently I spent four and a half years as a Product Manager and Director of Product at Facebook.
I've started to keep a blog after a more than five year hiatus.
I joined Facebook to work on identity and privacy products. After the IPO, as revenue growth was decelerating, I was asked to join the Ads product team. I had the honor of leading the Ads product team in the critical months and years after the company's IPO.
After two and a half years on Ads I moved over to lead the Facebook Friend Sharing team. Friend Sharing is responsible for all of the content on Facebook that don't come from businesses and celebrities.
Before Facebook I co-founded and led Blip, an online video company that's now part of The Walt Disney Corporation. Before Blip I worked for companies like the National Hockey League and Time Inc as a programmer and sysadmin.
