During the web 1.0 days, Tod launched Mindful Eye, an artificial intelligence firm that developed the patented technology that could analyze public opinion comments posted on the Internet and aired in the media, thus providing a "mood monitor" of stocks. The company went public in 18 months. And he was one of the Internet’s first webmasters – creating a site ranked 8th best in the world – beating out such heavyweights as Sony, Microsoft, and AT&T.
