Early Web pioneer and Glitch CEO Anil Dash has been a strong voice championing the core values of the Web since practically as long as it has existed. Along the way, he was an early executive at Movable Type, an adviser to the Obama Whitehouse’s Office of Digital Strategy, and adviser to companies like Medium and Donor’s Choose.
Today Anil is the CEO of Glitch, a company that makes it easy to make apps, bots, art and all sorts of digital experiences, all within the Web browser, alongside a community of millions of other supportive creators.
