About Walter Elly

NECN interviewing me about location-based services

This is my personal site where you can find my blog and learn more about me. Since you’ve arrived at this page you’ve either typed in my website name directly, searched on my name and found this page or clicked through to the “About Walter Elly” link from my blog. So, here’s all about me:

I am passionate about technology but let me be clear: I love people- my family, the most. I’m a proud father of three, loving life in New Hampshire. My philosophy is that technology is really something to harness in order to create more time in the world for the things that matter, whatever they are to you. I also believe that we still have a long, long way to go. The upside to this is that there’s TONS of value to still unlock in order to get there. Let’s find this value together.

A quick way to see what I’m up to is to read through press coverage of my work and love for technology:
