Dan Lane’s for hire: Need help with your mobile tech?

I’ve been badgering Dan to write an overview piece about himself ever since he took a step back from Howler. Whilst his priority is, I suspect, to do a bit of relaxing (from what I saw of Howler, it was fairly full-on, 18 hour days, that sort of thing) I don’t think that should be allowed. I know there’s a lot of companies out there looking for assistance, even though we’re supposedly in a ‘credit crunch’, that doesn’t appear to be influencing demand across the mobile sphere.

Mr Lane is gold dust. If you need a chap to help you out with your technology strategy/product management, talk to him. Despite the fact he’s got an RFID chip embedded in his arm, he’s a nice calm guy — who speaks English and understands commercial reality. Tell him I sent you.

He tells me he’s up for short or long term commitments. He’s a particular affinity for startups but he’s consulted to the best of the Fortune 500 and. He won’t tell you about it himself because of various commitments but he’s regularly put on a plane and flown to HQs across the globe to sort out multinational technical screw-ups.

Thus, if you need a technical action man, Dan is he. He’s relatively available for new projects at the moment.

Here’s the piece I asked him to write:

– – – – –

I eat, sleep and dream telecoms. I’m a serial entrepreneur having founded several innovative startups in the mobile and telecom spaces.

Before becoming an entrepreneur I spent a decade gaining technical experience in carrier environments, designing, building and supporting their complex infrastructures. I have also provided telecoms (mobile and fixed-line) consultancy to several large philanthropic organisations. Some of my personal projects such as my RFID implant and emergency SMS gateway have been covered by mainstream press (NYT, WSJ, BBC etc).

As a founder I’ve spent my recent years coming up with and refining telecoms and mobile product ideas, building a team and working with them to bring those ideas to market.

Howler Technologies, my current startup, has built an amazing piece of telecoms infrastructure based on the IBM Cell/BE processor. In many ways working with such cutting edge software and hardware is very exciting but I’m more passionate about creating products that people rave about and that’s difficult in the infrastructure market. Howler has a great management team running it now so I’ve stepped away to move back into working with consumer-oriented mobile technology and/or services.

My expertise and experience covers an absolutely massive range of topics on both business and technical levels centered around telecoms, mobile, web and the internet.

Ideally I’m looking for a role in research and development, product development or perhaps an advisory role working on something innovative and fresh. If you think I might be of use to your company do feel free to give me a call (+44 20 7099 7097) or send me an E-Mail – (dan.lane@mobileindustryreview.com).

(oh, there is also that little mobile phone show I do with Ewan, Ben and James on the Internet Telly 😉

Nice one Dan. Thanks for writing.

Snap him up!
