I've been at Akamai for over 12 years, and have been involved in improving Web site performance over that time in a number of different roles.
I provided sales support for an early managed Web hosting service from BBN Planet ( ->GTE Internetworking -> Genuity), and got first hand experience with the different factors that impacted Web site performance.
I'm the author/editor of the State of the Internet report series at Akamai Technologies.
Seemed like a good group -- this was my first meetup, and I'm looking forward to being involved in future ones.
