500 Hats

Dave McClure has been geeking out in Silicon Valley for almost twenty years as a software developer, entrepreneur, startup advisor, angel investor, blogger, & internet marketing nerd. Dave is the conference chair for Graphing Social Patterns, and a co-chair for Web 2.0 Expo. He has been a guest lecturer at Stanford University for the nation’s first-ever course on building Facebook Apps.

Previously, Dave launched and ran marketing for job search engine Simply Hired, and ran PayPal’s Developer Network program. Prior to PayPal Dave was a database consultant and programmer and in 1994 he founded Aslan Computing, acquired by Servinet/Panurgy in 1998.

Before coming to Silicon Valley, Dave barely graduated from the Johns Hopkins University with a BS in Mathematical Sciences Engineering and a minor in frisbee, billiards, and foosball. His interests include microfinance and entrepreneurship, ultimate frisbee, and an ever-growing collection of silly hats.
