Aside from having co-founded the Pho digital music listserv (photo from a Sunday pho gathering at left, Jim's on the right-hand side), Jim is an author, columnist, and wireless industry consultant. During his five-year stint as head of technology for Geffen Records, he led a team that in June of 1994 distributed the first full-length commercial song on-line, by Aerosmith. Geffen was the first entertainment company to install a web server, and Geffen World was one of the first corporate intranet sites.
Jim recently returned from a month in Finland (at times working inside the arctic circle), consulting for wireless industry clients. What he has planned next, I do not know. But if Jim's driving, we're in for an adventure.
