I’m Ben Turner. I want to start up a new organization called Galapag.us. It will provide personal data controls as well as a persistent identity for every person on Earth. It will provide this through a web-based reputation management platform encompassing all aspects of life, community, and association.
I am a social media operations analyst working in Washington DC on Gov 2.0 projects. I just finished a degree, studying international development, internet policy, and social business entrepreneurship as a graduate student in the Masters of Science in Foreign Service program at Georgetown University.
I was researching as a junior fellow for the Yahoo!/Georgetown Institute for the Study of Diplomacy fellowship. My research topic was openness vs. closedness in online social networking in the US and BRIC countries.
