John Borthwick

I work in the technology, communications and media space — as an entrepreneur, a builder and an investor. My interests are in building great companies — and in the process understanding about how media evolves as it collides with real time conversations.

The companies I am working with are listed on the betaworks site. Prior to launching betaworks I was CEO of Fotolog, and prior to that I was Snr. VP of Technology and Alliances at Time Warner. I arrived at Time Warner — AOL — in early 1997 when they acquired the company I had started back in 1994. The company was WP Studio, producer of three sites: Total New York (one of the first local city guides, now gone), äda ‘web and spanker (a pre blog, daily journal)

I also sit on the board and/or act as an adviser to: Center for Independent Media, Coburn Ventures, Rhizome and HRW.
