I'm the Co-founder and CEO of The Grommet. We launch undiscovered consumer products. It's also the birthplace of Citizen Commerce. I write about design, cultural anthropology, and start-ups, mostly.

With friends like Dan….

I feel so lucky to have friends like Dan Weinreb.  He’s a rocket scientist (figuratively), who wrote the book on the programming language LISP (literally), and one of the nicest people I’ve ever met.  Here’s an excerpt from his post about Grommet today:

The company was founded by my friend, Jules Pieri. She and her team carefully test each product. In fact, Jules once recruited me to help test out a new kind of American caviar. (She provided champagne as well; it’s a tough job, but somebody’s got to do it.) The only other member of the team I’ve met so far is Nataly Kogan, the Chief Community Officer and a great entrepreneur as well. I’m looking forward to meeting the rest of the team; their office is very close to where I live.

Dan is part of that Boston entrepreneurial and tech scene that makes me so glad to be living/working here.
