Jon William Hansen was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba on July 21, 1959. Now living in Buckingham, Quebec which is a small town of approximately 12,000 people that is 20 minutes outside of Canada’s Capital, Ottawa, Jon and his family Jennifer, Savannah Maria, Pierce Christian and a fifth member of the family due in July 2010 live a peaceful and satisfying life. Beyond the obvious passion for social media, family activites center on volunteering at the local Legion where Jennifer is President, and pursuing both family and individual interests which includes art and dance. In May 2001 Jon sold his company for $12 million dollars – mostly shares and debentures, only to see the dot com bust erode away his personal wealth to practically nothing by 2007. This as it turns out was the catalyst that caused him to pursue his present endeavor in the world of social media. Today, the PI Social Media Network is viewed as being one of the top networks in the industry in terms of innovation and quality of content. The flagship Procurement Insights is actually the number one sponsored blog in its industry sector in total number of sponsors, and industry pundits rate the PI Window on Business Show as one of the most popular in North America. Besides writing more than 700 articles and white papers, Jon is also a highly regarded speaker addressing audiences of all sizes ranging from 10 to 20 people in a seminar to giving keynote addresses to 400 attendees at major conferences. Prior to completing this book, Jon had finalized the agreement to write a second book on the emergence of the So Act social network. The second book titled “What Are You Waiting For? So Act Already! (The Unsociable Business of Social Networks and Why the So Act Social Network Will Change the World),” is now available.
