About This Site

This site is a personal site presenting my own views. The thoughts here do not represent the views of any organization to which I am affiliated, even though I may end up sharing my perspectives on such things from time to time.

The blog is meant to capture my random thoughts on a range of topics, including technology, my daily observations, and things in my life that I want to share with the world. In addition to my thoughts, I will also share my photos, some of which are randomly displayed in the header image.

About Daniel Jacobson – Professional

Currently, I am focused on building a portfolio of board seats, advisory roles, and consultancy gigs.  If you are interested in discussing such opportunities with me, please reach out to me on LinkedIn.

Previously, I ran large engineering organizations at several major media companies: Netflix, The New York Times, and NPR.  As an engineering leader, I focused on establishing a robust long-term vision, hiring and growing a strong team of leaders and ICs with the right skills to pursue that vision, liberally sharing context to my teams, nurturing a strong culture of inclusivity, learning, experimentation, and innovation, and then getting out of people’s way to let them do their best work.

In addition to writing a range of articles, presenting at many conferences, and building the public presence of my companies and teams, I also published a book through O’Reilly called “APIs: A Strategy Guide”.
