About Ian Lurie:
Ian graduated from UCLA Law school in 1993. He enjoyed the experience so much that he never practiced law, choosing instead to work as a typist, then a bike messenger, then a writer, and finally started his own information design company in 1995. As it slowly sank in that this whole Internet thing wasn’t a fad, he retooled his company to focus on Internet marketing, it sounds so much cooler than information design, anyway.
Ian and his team have created Pythia Analytics, a social media and search analytics tool. He’s recorded a series of Google Analytics tutorials and his agency is a Google authorized Analytics Consultant. Today, Ian Lurie is still the president of Portent Interactive, an Internet marketing agency in Seattle, WA, USA. He is the author of Conversation Marketing, the book, and Conversation Marketing, the blog.
