Founding Partner Joy Scooter
Mr. Billings is the founder of Eclipse Code, a mobile application development company staffed by digital nomads and other advanced software engineers. He is also the co-founder of Thinquers, an online community of knowledge seekers that leverage interactions among its members to create highly accessible and reusable information. And, when he is not managing those two technology entities he runs an online retailer that markets goods to a highly targeted audience of yachtsmen and regatta organizers.
He began his career in technology in 1995, right around the time Netscape and Internet Explorer began their virtual turf war for browser dominance. The “dot-com” boom started and so too did the innovation economy. He first worked for Modem Media, a privately held online marketing communications agency responsible for creating the first banner ad – among other less dubious accomplishments. After Modem Media, he joined the management teams of two dot.com start-ups – Thunderhouse & EchoMail, before Internet 1.0 succumbed to the inevitable economic correction.
Mr. Billings holds a B.S. in Biology from Florida Southern College in Lakeland, Florida and an M.Ed. in Higher Education Administration from Boston University.
