Mike McCue


There is no question that Flipboard made a big splash when it debuted, with a hand- some and slick interface for consuming social media on the Apple iPad, created by one of Silicon Valley's most reliable entrepreneurs. While we'll ask McCue the story behind Flipboard's meteoric rise, he now must answer questions about the start-up's scalability and approach to outperforming the growing competition. Previously, he founded Tellme Networks in 1999, and then joined Microsoft as the General Manager of the Tellme subsidiary. Before that, McCue worked at Netscape as Vice President of Technoloy. He joined the famed browser company after its acquisition of the first company he founded, Paper Software, a leader in 3-D browser technology.
