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

In my spare time I semi-organize (since 2005) the local BarCamp community (BarCampWaterloo) and StartupCamps.
