Who We Are

Josh Klein

Networker was created by Joshua Klein, a veteran IT Security geek, Author, Speaker, and technology consultant. While he was writing this book he realized that most people still treat their networks like financial systems instead of as gift economies in which relationships grew stronger and more valuable the more you participate in them. Networker is his attempt to help everyone become more effective by connecting the dots between the connections we already have.
