This site is the personal blog of Jesse Rodgers who is the Director of the Creative Destruction Lab at Rotman, founder of TribeHR (acquired by NetSuite in 2013), was at the University of Waterloo as the Director of Student Innovation and VeloCity (the dormcubator he built), and a Past-President of the University of Waterloo Staff Association.  I have been on the Special Projects Group in IST as the UI/Front-end lead (2 years) and before that I was Manager of Web Communications for the University (6 years).

In his spare time he organizes (since 2005) the local BarCamp community (BarCampWaterloo) and StartupCamps.

Why “who you calling a Jesse” for a blog’s name? It is fun. In the UK “a Jesse” is a bit of an insult apparently. Learned this when I met my wife. See:
