About Brandon Wirtz
Brandon Wirtz is Stremor’s CTO and “mad scientist.” He is responsible for making the core language tools that power the various Stremor technologies.
Brandon is probably best known for his early demonstrations of ways to game Google for fun and profit before SEO really had a three letter acronym, or the general public knew it was possible to shape results, news, and reviews to favor your company.
His background in “gaming” large rules engines, and shaping consumer opinions through social engineering makes him an ideal person for converting the rules of determining what is real news, and what is spam to machine code. As someone who knows how to generate spin, he has little trouble identifying it.
Brandon was a pioneer in video compression, but was also a teacher, summer camp director, team building and playground games instructor.
