StarrTrek is Oliver Starr’s personal weblog. For the most part, this blog is focused on developing technologies in the Mobile, Web2.0 and Green Energy ecosystems however that is not to say that I will limit myself to these topics should the desire strike to delve into politics, UFOlogy, health or conspiracy theories of various kinds.
As my mentor Ted Nicholas used to say, “copy can never be too long, it can only be too boring”. Please let me know if you start reading this blog only to discover that you’ve dozed off and drooled on your desk, because if that happens too often I’ll have to do better…
Please note that the opinions expressed herein are entirely my own and do not reflect the opinions of my employers, clients, friends, family, or others that may post comments on this site unless expressly indicated otherwise.
About Oliver Starr
Oliver Starr is an entrepreneur, a writer and a consultant. He has also been a professional road and mountain bike racer, a big wave surfer, and a highly competent skier. He is the youngest person in history to ride a registered century bike ride – an accomplishment he achieved when he was only 7 years old. It took him over 9 hours. Upon completion he was asked if he was tired. He responded that he was not. He then closed the door of the vehicle in which he was traveling, buckled his safety belt and was asleep before the car had left its parking spot.
Currently Oliver is the Executive Editor of GTDtimes, a web site that is focused on aggregating all the best news and information related to David Allen’s “Getting Things Done” paradigm of personal and professional productivity.
In recent years past Oliver has been the founding blogger at two nationally recognized blogs: MobileCrunch, a TechCrunch Network Blog and The Mobile Technology Weblog. He was also the Senior Vice President of Business Development and Chief Mobility Officer for Foldera and prior to that was the CTO of one and CEO of two other start-up ventures that he helped lead from inception to acquisition.
Educationally, Oliver’s focus has always been on the sciences with a particular interest in ethology, biology, biochemistry and kinesiology. Oliver is nationally recognized as an authority on mobile devices as well as sports performance and pharmacological and dietary means of improving both general health and athletic performance.
He is a prolific writer and a seasoned public speaker who frequently participates in technology conferences both in the US and abroad. Oliver can be reached at oliver at owstarr dot com or via phone at 415-704-4544.
