Esther Dyson, who some have called the most powerful woman in computing, is principal of EDventure, and sits on the board of several organizations, including Boxbe, 23andMe, Yandex, Meetup, and Eventful.com. "I spend most of my time exploring new space, health care and IT start-ups and technologies, writing about them and actively (and with full disclosure) investing in some of them," she said in her LinkedIn profile. "I love what I do and I love all the travel it entails!" Dyson's investments include Fluidinfo, Yandex, and Personal Genome Project. Many of her current investments involve areas such as space, healthcare, and genetics, and she is a founding member of Space Angels Network, a network of accredited investors focused on aerospace-related opportunities.
