Eric Swenson, Founder & Principal Consultant
Eric has worked at the forefront of digital media, electronic publishing and information services for more than 25 years. He began his career in 1992 as the co-founder of the radical art group and publisher Necro Enema Amalgamated. Despite (or perhaps because of) his work in experimental art, design and independent publishing, he has created a prolific and diverse career in both consumer and scholarly media, most recently, leading Elsevier’s premier abstracting and indexing platform, Scopus. His non-profit experience includes serving as a board member and president of the NFAIS (National Federation of Information Services) board of directors. Eric speaks on issues pertaining to the intersection of scholarly communications, product development, open design and open source intelligence-driven research methodologies.
