Jaap van Till is a CONNECTIVIST, who specializes in designing disruptive network architecture and infrastructure for improving cooperation between people and collaboration across networks. He writes about the emerging forces of social media driven by smart phones, tablets and the growth of Fiber-to-the-Home. (Powerful stuff!)

His recent essay on The Power of Flocking has been widely discussed on the Internet.  Van Till has consulted successfully on using innovative technologies to rethink worldwide networks for Education and Research (NREN’s) as well as huge private company networks, as partner at Stratix Consultants (NL). His consultancy work centres around explaining technology to managers and explaining objectives to network specialists. The canyon between geeks and managers is still wide and deep. Van Till served as Professor for Corporate Networks and Internet Infrastructure at Delft University (NL) and  Internet Infrastructure Professor at HAN University of Applied Sciences in Arnhem (NL). His inventions include “Tillegraaf ” baseband modems and “Plector” local multiplexers. Weaving broadband networks between people to work together and create value.
