Biz Stone is an American entrepreneur and Co-Founder of Twitter. He has been developing large scale systems that facilitate the open exchange of information for more than fifteen years.

He is an advisor to start-ups such as answer community Fluther.com, travel service Trazzler.com, which he co-founded, content encouragement service Plinky.com, and the non-profit organisation Justgive.org, among others, this allows Stone to share much of what he has learned over the past decade.
