Lessons Learned From 10 Years of Online Projects

I have spent the past 10 years riding waves of technology as they have grown in importance. This ability to read trends, alongside my ability to express ideas clearly, have allowed me to work with some of the most important names on the web. I have created work that has reached over a million people, in several languages, and made several million dollars in the process for individuals and groups.


Julien Smith is an author, consultant, and speaker who has been involved in online communities for over 15 years – from early BBSes and flashmobs to the social web as we know it today.

He was one of the first people on the web to use podcasting in 2004, as well as being one of the first web personalities to get broadcast by traditional radio. He has since worked with and been interviewed by numerous media organizations such as CNN, CBC, CTV– and a bunch of others that don’t start with the letter C.

Julien’s latest venture is Breather.com

Breather is a quiet space in the middle of the hustle and bustle. We’ve created awesome spaces so you can take a much-needed break from your environment.

So, if you find yourself downtown with nothing to do or too much to do, book a Breather, kick back, relax, take a nap, or get to work in some peace and quiet.
