I’m Charles Fitzgerald and this is my blog. I write infrequent, self-referential, overly parenthetical and verbose posts mostly for my own amusement. Stylistically, think a longform version of Twitter.

I am an active angel investor, advisor, mentor, and board member.

I am the Managing Director of Platformonomics, LLC, which provides strategy consulting services to a select number of companies.

I am a co-instigator of the Cloud City Tech Meetup.

You can contact me at blog [at] platformonomics.com
