Jason Salas

A software developer, marketer, broadcaster, sportswriter and filmmaker, Jason enjoys perpetual summer living on the island of Guam. He fell in love with the Web the moment he first got online in 1994, seeing it as the world’s biggest toy, and began helping people embrace the Internet before shifting his focus to content development and ultimately to designing data-driven systems. In the last few years he’s been concentrating on Google Glass, Hangout extensions, HTML5 games, and Chromecast apps. Since 1999 he’s worked at http://kuam.com, where he runs the company’s R&D group and also co-anchors the nightly news http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WIlG6​gCPSt8[(no, really)]. Jason was twice named a Microsoft MVP for his involvement with the ASP.NET community, is a four-time winner of the Edward R. Murrow Award for cutting-edge web development in the news industry, and is constantly interacting in Google+ Communities for Glass users and developers. He’s served as technical editor for a book on Microsoft Hailstorm, has written for .NET Magazine, MSDN and Wrox, and authored an e-book about the trials and tribulations of a semi-pro football league. He holds a bachelor’s degree in marketing from the University of Guam and an MBA with emphasis in technology management from the University of Phoenix. He’s also an adjunct professor of MIS and business at the University of Guam and a member of the Football Writers Association of America. He wants to make good on his public promise to be the first man on the planet to do three distinct things with Glass: host a Hangout On Air from Epcot Center, call play-by-play for a game while broadcasting his POV video to give viewers a behind-the-scenes look at a live sports production, and direct a stage version of Hamlet with all actors performing the tragedy of the troubled Prince of Denmark through their own first-person perspectives.
