Our experience is eclectic: we built our first ecommerce store in 1995 to sell quiz bowl questions to high schools; we used a pay-per-click arbitrage scheme to quietly accumulate over 1 percent of Google's partner revenue at the time of Google's IPO; and we pioneered the field of retail shopper marketing while sitting at the nexus of Procter & Gamble and Wal-Mart.
