NICCO MELE is an entrepreneur and consultant who, above all else, has his finger on the pulse of what is happening in our rapidly-evolving digital age.  As webmaster for Governor Howard Dean's 2004 presidential bid, Nicco helped popularize the use of technology and social media that revolutionized political fundraising and reshaped American politics.  Drawing from his experience, Nicco teaches graduate-level courses on the internet and politics as a faculty member at the Harvard Kennedy School.  He is also the co-founder of EchoDitto (now Echo & Co.), a leading internet strategy and consulting firm, and is the author of The End of Big: How The Internet Makes David The New Goliath, in which he explores the consequences of living in a socially-connected society.  Follow him on Twitter @nicco.
