Director, Digital Factory
Jon Bruner directs the Digital Factory program at Formlabs, which focuses on digital manufacturing strategy. Before joining Formlabs, he oversaw O'Reilly Media's publications on data, AI, hardware, the Internet of Things, manufacturing, and electronics, and was program chair, along with Joi Ito, of the O'Reilly Solid conference, which covered the intersection between software and the physical world. He was previously data editor at Forbes Magazine, where he combined writing and programming to approach a broad variety of subjects, from the operation of the Columbia River's dams to migration within the United States. He studied mathematics and economics at the University of Chicago and lives in San Francisco, where he can occasionally be found at the console of a pipe organ.
