Person Details

Update

In March 2008 Eric Marcoullier founded Gnip.

Prior to Gnip, Eric Marcoullier founded MyBlogLog with Todd Sampson in January of 2005. The service went live in March 2005 and was acquired by Yahoo for an estimated $10 million in January 2007. He left Yahoo in July 2007.

Eric previously co-founded games and entertainment content portal IGN, where he also served as the Product Guy through its pre-IPO spinoff in 1999. IGN was purchased by News Corp. in 2005 for $650 million.

In between, IGN and MyBlogLog, Eric made video games in a small town in Western Massachusetts. He advises a half-dozen companies including Zynga and Zemanta and mentors at TechStars and Ohio University's games program. He spends his copious free time with his wife and two beautiful sons, pining for the days when he had time to play first-person shooters and Ultimate Frisbee.

Eric received a BA degree from the UMass Amherst University Without Walls in 2004.
