Building a Better World through Tech for Collaboration

Celebrating CHM 2021 Fellow Ray Ozzie with Bill Gates, Esther Dyson, Mark Cuban, danah boyd, and Mitch Kapor

Kicking off the 2021 Fellow Awards, CHM will honor collaborative software pioneer and entrepreneur Ray Ozzie. 

Ozzie will be presented with the CHM Fellow Award, joining distinguished past honorees, such as Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak, NASA mathematician and “hidden figure” Katherine Johnson, internet pioneer Tim Berners-Lee, and ENIAC programmer Jean Bartik.

Ozzie has devoted his life to connecting people with computers and building collaborative tools, from PLATO educational software to the iconic Lotus Notes. In 2006, Ozzie succeeded Bill Gates as Microsoft’s CTO and chief software architect, leading the company to develop the Azure cloud service and helping define the modern digital workplace. He has started several companies developing innovative forms of collaboration software, including Iris Associates, Groove Networks, Talko, and most recently, Blues Wireless to focus on IoT communications. 

Ozzie’s story and accomplishments will be honored through storytelling, tributes, and a dynamic panel discussion about the present and future of tech for collaboration.
