He’s got lots of interesting stories to tell: I think very few entrepreneurs have sold multi-hundred-million-dollar companies to both Apple and Samsung; very few people have worked this closely with Steve Jobs on a project that was clearly more than personal to him; very few people have interacted with so many top people, including Mark Zuckerberg, Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, and many more. AI and next generation interfaces are both very hot topics that Dag knows a lot about, and he is one of the most visionary futurists that I know.
