Профессиональные цели:
I drive disruptive projects in the IT industry that will transform the way we work with information, helping us to process information faster, make more knowledge-supported decisions and become more productive.

My current product is Zet Universe which is serious and playful infinite desktop that helps users to spatially organize their information (docs, websites, etc.) as they think about it by projects & interests. It helps to switch between projects by time accessed, provides meaningful content recommendations across entire user information space when amount of data is too big for user to bet only on her associative memory, and gives several tools to preserve the context of each project to easy recall it later. It helps information workers in critical roles (PMs, analysts) to process information faster and make more informative decisions at their work.
