Who we are

BlurryEdge Strategies is a legal and business strategy consulting practice founded by Lauren Gelman and based in San Francisco, CA.

Why BlurryEdge Strategies? The social web has taught us that our social networks are
not nearly as well-defined as we thought they were.  Billions of people are using the Internet’s innovative
applications and platforms to connect with others who may share their interests
and values — forging new professional relationships, and reconnecting with
people from their past.  In making
these connections, they’re continuously evaluating and mapping the “blurry-edges”
of their social networks.

Whether you are a start-up, non-profit or university; In the
social networking, geo-location, phone application, or virtual world space; Tackling
FTC, DMCA, CDA, advertising or privacy compliance; Developing identity tools,
viral apps, e-books, or user generated content sites–
  You are situated on the blurry edge of this new social
ecology and may face novel and complicated legal and policy questions as you
determine how to address legal issues and user concerns while maintaining a viable
business strategy.


At BlurryEdge Strategies, we specialize in guiding companies
and institutions as they navigate these thorny issues.  From short-term projects targeted at
specific business needs, to providing a long- term advisory role as your
business needs evolve, we focus our engagements to address your needs efficiently
and effectively so you can focus on continuing to help people define the
blurry-edges of their social networks.
