David founded Wireless Ink aka Winksite (http://winksite.com) a leading mobile content management and social networking software company whose solutions connect publishers to their audiences and audience members to each other. It is his belief that the availability of simple tools that enable direct-to-audience publishing and community across all devices and networks is essential to “ripping mobility from the clutches of telecom” (tag borrowed from Mike Rowehl, MoMo Silicon Valley.)
David has more then 20 years experience as an entrepreneur, technologist, and senior level executive. During this time Mr. Harper successfully founded several software development companies, one of which he sold to an investment bank after growing it from scratch to millions in revenues. David has also been instrumental in capital raises and P&L for companies under management. His forward-thinking expertise in information architecture, UI design and content publishing has provided award-winning solutions for established major brands. His clients have included: Cablevision, FUSE TV, adidas, Computer Associates, Comverse, Verint, Schering Plough Key, Nickelodeon, Time Warner, RIA Group, Nortel and Heidelberg Publishing Group — among others.
Born in the USA, lived in London SW5 during the birth of punk. David is now a hardcore member of the mobile revolution – connecting the world from the streets. David Harper’s Blog “Different Things” can be found at http://harper.wirelessink.com.
