Crowdstorm, his first book, is a guide to working with large online crowds to find and evaluate ideas.

He has an MSc from MIT where he focused on computer-aided design, an MBA from the Berlin School of Creative Leadership where he researched online collaboration, and a BSc from the University of Cape Town.
