ABOUT herecandy
Jason Arbon and Heidi Young share a passion for personalization, search, discovery, and sharing. Both have long histories in these areas. Context is Jason's brainchild after spending years working on web search at Google and Microsoft. He has always believed in using user context to enhance the search and browse experience. He helped lead efforts in web search, personalization, browse, and social at both Google and Microsoft. After sharing his frustration about the lack of movement in this space with Heidi, Context was born. Heidi was leading web search personalization efforts at Bing while at Microsoft and shared Jason's passion for creating a more relevant experience that went beyond ten blue links. They came together and created Context, which is only the beginning of their plans to personalize the web.
