This is the personal blog of Jason Anderson. I’ve been a technologist for over 30 years, from the 8-bit madhouse of the 80’s to the current world where apparently you don’t even need an actual server to run a billion-dollar enterprise. In my years thus far, I’ve worked in the embedded software nee “Internet of Things” ecosystem, video game development, Web 1.0 technology, consumer insights and analytics, and (presently) music tech.
All of it is absolutely fascinating.
I’m currently an owner/investor in Lazerwood Industries (making stuff with lasers) and the founder/owner of Datagame (specialized software for enhanced survey research). My day job is at UnitedMasters, building out data science and insights capabilities on behalf of independent artists and musicians.
Prior to Datagame, I ran Insights Meta (circa 2012-17), a full-service custom research agency focused on video games. I’ve also managed consumer insights projects at Amazon Game Studios and global consumer insights at Blizzard Entertainment. I managed business intelligence teams at Xbox and led the consulting practice at International Development Group, a boutique strategic consulting agency.
