He recently joined Google as In-House Philosopher / Director of Engineering, heading development of several initiatives involving social and search. He came to Google from Aardvark, the social search engine, where he was co-founder and CTO, overseeing product development and research strategy. Prior to Aardvark, Horowitz built several companies around applications of intelligent language processing. He co-founded Perspecta (acquired by Excite), was lead architect for Novation Biosciences (acquired by Agilent), and co-founded NewsDB (now Daylife).

I was kinda bored so I hopped onto Damon Horowitz’s videos over at TED talk, and stumbled upon his class that he presented to first year Columbia Engineering students on the topic of entrepreneurship.  Figured it’s good enough to share.  Enjoy.

*I’ve always loved my philosophy classes even way back in college 😀
