William Hurley (aka whurley)

Entrepreneur, Author and Innovator
Creating software and systems designed to make people’s lives better is only part of what I’m about, though. It’s important to evangelize on these issues. I’ve spoken at The United Nations, ISoJ, SxSW, and multiple TEDx events, on topics from cyber security to the omnipresence of what used to be called the future and is now just called the way we live. And most of the time, when speaking, I’ll be wearing pants.

’ve made Austin my home since 1994 and have seen and helped the city transform into a hub for tech innovation. After my time here with Apple R&D and again as an IBM Master Inventor, I chose to start my businesses here, fostering dynamic communities with companies like Chaotic Moon Studios and Honest Dollar.
