Ryan wears the label "geek" with pride. He's immersed himself in new technologies and online communities since the days before the web. From dial-up BBSes to the shiny new "Web 2.0" frontier, Ryan has long embraced and evangelized the ways in which technology can bring people together. There's nary a gadget he hasn't tested, nor a website he hasn't explored. Ryan especially enjoys linking traditional and new media, going from managing a daily newspaper to producing audio and video shows in his den. A lucky husband and proud father of three, he holds a degree in Journalism from the University of Hawaii.
