Maurice Young Centre for Entrepreneurship and Venture Capital Research, and Associate Professor of OBHR at the Sauder School of Business at the University of British Columbia. He is an Associate Editor of Administrative Science Quarterly, and Past Division Chair of the Academy of Management Organization and Management Theory Division. Marc-David has long been fascinated with the intersection of technology and society, having worked with the creator of the first Campus-Wide Information System (CUInfo) and the first online counseling service (Dear Uncle Ezra) well before HTML and the web existed. Prior to the commercialization of the internet, while procrastinating on his dissertation about the airline industry in graduate school, in an effort to “get back up to speed on the emerging HTML technology” he created the first online airline portal (Airlines of the Web). As the consumer internet started to commercialize, he was struck by the interaction of those communities interested in online community enabled communication and those interested in online profit. That experience of seeing how communities formed online around a common interest, led him a bit later to co-creating the first crowdsourced telecom consumer information rates and fees database (ABTolls) with a mission of helping people get the best consumer information possible. Similar to when he first learned of HTML in the early 1990’s, when he first learned of blockchain he once again felt the need to “get back up to speed” and has immersed himself in the growing communities of people working on such distributed trust technologies. He hopes insights from organizational theory can help to shape our joint future so that the societal impact of this shift is designed in such a way to ensure a better more equitable future for all.
