I have accepted Google funding in the past. Google was one of the sponsors of FreedomHEC USA. I used the money to pay for travel and accomodations for speakers.

I am a former employee and current stockholder in ScyllaDB, which is a really fast NoSQL database.

I am a member of the advisory board of Incentives Research, a Canadian corporation focused on the economics of software quality.
