Harry Gottlieb

CEO/Founder
Jellyvision
http://www.jellyvision.com

Founded Jellyvision in 1989. The company had a different name then and the international headquarters was in his bedroom, in the corner, over by the closet. Around 1993, he programmed a little trivia game where the host read off all the questions and shot back smart-ass remarks when a player got the answers wrong. That eventually became "YOU DON'T KNOW JACK." Soon, Harry got to thinking that this game interface, where the character in a computer program talks to you, like talks to YOU, could be used for a lot of other stuff. Ever since, he's been developing what Jellyvision now calls the Interactive Conversation Interface. Harry spends most of his days scrunching his face, thinking real hard, and hoping brilliant ideas will result. It works out better than you'd think.
