Stephen Pickering is an entrepreneur, blogger and musician. In 1989 he co-founded and was the CEO of a successful retail furnishing operation in Little Rock, Ark., which he sold in 2004. He continues to be involved in many ventures that are as diverse as real estate development to technology, one of which, RackspaceReseller.com, specializes in reselling Rackspace Cloud Sites. He loves technology in and of itself, but also its impact on the culture as a whole, especially economics, politics, the arts, science and education. You'll find him writing on these subjects and others on his personal blog, StephenPickering.com. He is an avid fan and follower of Leo Laporte and his Twit.tv network, and Robert Scoble, or "The Scobleize,r" from whom he garners much of his tech information and enthusiasm.
