John Herren has been called the “mashup posterboy”, and “every bit one of the geniuses that’s driving the mashup software culture forward.” Just wrapping up his 4-year role as lead geek for Prime Time US, the company behind the smash hit movie and book The Secret, he is back to freelancing. His latest development work is for Tommy Lee’s project The Public Record, a crowd-sourced music mashup.
John’s work in the mashup space has been referenced in books such as Yahoo Hacks, Business Driven Technology, and Collective Intelligence in Action, as well as academic papers. John has been acknowledged for both his concepts and code from companies such as Google, IBM, Calais / Thomson Reuters, and The New York Times. His work on projects like Tagcloud.com and other mashups has been covered online by Yahoo, TechCrunch, Wired, Read Write Web, Boing Boing, and Programmable Web. As former developer evangelist for Zend Technologies and six-time instructor at Mashup Camp, John has given talks at conferences such as OSCON, Linux World, the Red Hat Developer conference, the eBay Developer conference, Under the Radar, and Web Builder 2.0. John enjoys using open source software to bend the web into exciting new chimeras of hyperlinked goodness.
