Born in Boston, House in San Francisco, Home everywhere… Stowe is a worlds man, enlightening and spreading fun where he goes. He’s done some great things for his clients and the internet as a whole. In his own word…

I am best known these days for my writing (and the thinking behind it, I hope) at /Message. I am obsessed with social tools, and their impact on business, media, and society. I coined the term “social tools” in 1999, the same year I started blogging, and I haven’t looked back since. Writing and working with clients takes most of my time, but I also speak at various events, such as Reboot, Lift, Shift, Mesh, Enterprise 2.0, Office 2.0, Under The Radar, and Web 2.0 Expo, to name a few from 2006 and 2007.

My work is principally oriented toward the theory and practice of social web application design and development, as well as related product strategy (like the activities formerly known as marketing). So far in 2007, I have worked with very large organizations (AOL, and the Open University, for example) to the most minute of start-ups (Underpaid Genius, for example, is a two person SF-based venture).

So, I consider myself the front man of a constantly shifting collaborative network, a band of doers and thinkers, designers and developers. Sometimes it’s a solo act, sometimes a duo, and when needed a combo.

There is only one Stowe and he’s unmistakable.
