Jonathan Zuck is President of the Association for Competitive Technology and founder of Americans for Technology Leadership. He was very active on the software patents directive, taking a position in favor of patenting software. ACT seems to be tied to corporate members like Microsoft, and Mr Zuck has been visited by Mr Gates in February 2005. ACT has also taken positions to defend Microsoft against the antitrust ruling of the Commission.
Previously, he has served as:
- President and founder, User Friendly, Inc. (1988-?)
- Vice President of Technology, Financial Dynamics (1996-1997) - merged with:
- Director of Technical Services, Spectrum Technology Group (1997-?)
Spectrum Technology Group has been a subsidiary of IT outsourcing firm CIBER Inc since 1996, when it was bought for $16.6 million. There has been no sign of it on the web since early 2000. It had a heavy emphasis on Microsoft technologies, with some Java.
