Joe Gollner is the Director of Gnostyx Research Inc., a company he founded to help organizations come to grips with their content in ways that are sustainable and scalable. His particular specialty revolves around leveraging open standards and intelligent content technologies to build solutions that connect the myriad of sources and processes that underlie how an enterprise performs and what it publishes. Along this line, he has led over 100 content management initiatives during the last twenty years, with several of these representing the high water mark in the industry for sophistication and scale.

Going further into the past and showcasing a not altogether healthy diversity of influences, he was an artillery officer in the Canadian army and graduated from the University of Oxford with a Master’s of Philosophy. Perhaps as an inevitable consequence of this history, he posts minor tomes on the nature of content through his blog, The Content Philosopher (www.gollner.ca).
