Harper Reed is an American technologist, known for his role as the Chief Technology Officer for Barack Obama's 2012 re-election campaign, his involvement in pioneering online crowdsourcing company Threadless, his hairstyle, and many other weird and wonderful projects he gets involved in.
We met Harper at MIT’s media lab in Berlin, in August last year. Being a fan of Harper’s work for many years, he took the opportunity to ask him about what Harper calls his life waves: periods in his career when he quit everything and said yes to any new opportunity that came his way.
