Adventures With Tomnod

Five years ago, the idea of Tomnod was born on the remote plains of Mongolia (in case you didn’t know, Tomnod” means “Big Eye” in Mongolian). Since then, millions of people have joined our thousands of campaigns and helped us explore every corner of the planet.

This week, I was honored to be invited to speak at Mobile Monday, a global network of app developers, hackers and entrepreneurs. As part of a DigitalGlobe session on Location + Mobile, I shared some of the adventures that I’ve taken with Tomnod. I start with our quest to search for the tomb of Genghis Khan, then share some tips about starting a company and finally describe how things really took off once we joined DigitalGlobe!

Tomnod is all about exploration, community and adventure. More adventures to come!
