I co-Founded KMi in 1994 with Tom Vincent and Kitty Chisholm, served as KMi Director until 2000 and became Chief Scientist until my retirement in 2007. My primary goal was to foster quality learning and social experiences with or without technology. My work interests included very large scale presence via messaging and gaming; social software; knowledge technologies as mediating tools for human interaction; internet mapping and visualization. This work built upon my longer-term interests and background in cognitive science, artificial intelligence, human-computer interaction and novice programming environments. My KMi colleagues and I created a variety of widely-used software environments, tools, and projects including Lyceum, KMi Stadium, BuddySpace, CitiTag and Meetomatic.

Keys: Social software, presence, artificial intelligence, human-computer interaction
